    A cold front north of the islands is expected to stall near Kauai.

    Only a few clouds were moving over the islands this morning.

Hazy skies, a chance of afternoon showers and rising surf are in the forecast through the weekend.

The National Weather Service says an approaching cold front has disrupted the cooling tradewinds, allowing vog to move over Oahu and other islands.

The front is expected to stall north of Kauai tonight, keeping light winds and vog in the forecast through Friday night, when another cold front is expected to move over the state.

The light winds could bring afternoon showers to inland areas because of humidity and daytime heating.

There’s a greater chance of rain Friday night and Saturday when the second cold front moves over the islands.

Meanwhile, a northwest swell should bring advisory-level surf by Saturday and a larger swell behind it could bring warning-level surf to north and west shores by Sunday.

West winds with the second cold front should blow the vog away late Friday night into Saturday.

But the vog could return Sunday as winds become light again through the middle of next week.

Highs will be between 80 and 85 degrees. Lows are expected to be in the mid 60s to low 70s.
