Breezy weather, big surf expected for Thanksgiving

    This composite satellite image taken Wednesday morning shows clouds over windward and mauka areas of most islands with a few showers over the Big Island and Maui.

Like cool mornings, sunny days, breezy tradewinds and surf?

Be thankful.

The National Weather Service says we can expect more of this week’s pleasant weather to continue on Thanksgiving Day and through the weekend.

"It (the weather) should be pretty much like today," said Jeff Powell, a meterologist with the Honolulu office of the National Weather Service, said Wednesday. "It’s going to be tradewinds weather."

The forecast for Wednesday and Thanksgiving Day calls for sunny skies over leeward areas of most islands and partly cloudy skies over windward and mauka sections, which could get some overnight and morning showers.

Tradewinds of 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts are expected Wednesday.

Thursday could see slightly stronger winds of 15 to 25 mph, with 35 mph gusts.

Highs should be between 79 and 85 degrees. Lows will be in the 60s to low-70s.

Hilo and windward sections of Maui and the Big Island got some rain overnight that continued into Wednesday morning.

Overnight lows were slightly warmer than Tuesday, with Lihue, Honolulu, Kalaeloa and Kona getting into the low 70s and Molokai, Kahului and Hilo remaining in the 60s.

A high surf advisory is in effect through 6 p.m. Thursday for the north- and east-facing shores of all islands except Lanai.

Surf on north shores is expected to be 12 to 15 feet through Thanksgiving. East shores are seeing 8 to 12-foot surf.
