A statewide flash flood watch expired Friday, according to the National Weather Service, although Hawaii island remained under a high-surf advisory for the weekend.

Forecasters said tradewinds were starting to return Friday, but hot and humid conditions were expected to stick around for Kauai, Oahu and Maui County, creating more afternoon showers, mainly in the western and southwestern sections of the islands.

“Even with a slight increase in trades, wind speeds will remain light, making the humid conditions feel even worse,” forecasters said.

The Big Island is under a high-surf advisory from 6 a.m. Saturday until 6 p.m. Sunday. Surf is expected to be in the 5-to-8-foot range on Saturday and increase to 10 to 14 feet on by late Sunday.
