The trend of cool tradewinds and sizable surf is expected to last through the weekend.

A high surf advisory for east shores of isles from Kauai to Hawaii island remains in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday.

Rough surf is expected to continue along east-facing shores into the weekend, according to weather officials, due to a north-northeast swell and strong, onshore winds. Surf is expected to reach 5 to 8 feet along east facing shores, resulting in strong, breaking waves and currents, making swimming dangerous.

A small craft advisory is also in effect for most of Kauai, the Kaiwi Channel, parts of Maui, Oahu and Hawaii island until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Forecasters expect cool and breezy, northeasterly trade winds, with mostly windward and mauka showers, through the weekend.
