Thanksgiving may be a good day to stay indoors with cloudy, windy and wet weather expected Thursday.
Conditions should be similar to today.
A wind advisory for the state is extended until 6 p.m. Thursday because of east winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts near 50 mph.
“Winds will weaken somewhat late tonight, but strengthen again Thursday morning,” forecasters said.
“Tradewinds will be strong and gusty into the holiday weekend.”
The strong winds are blowing rain clouds over the islands. Most of the showers are over windward and mauka areas, but some rain is making it to leeward sections.
The forecast for Honolulu and south shores of Oahu calls for a 50 percent chance of rain through Friday.
Forecasters expect another bout of above-average tradewind showers Saturday night into Sunday.
High clouds moving over the state from the west should also make for cloudy to partly sunny conditions Thursday.
Expect cool and windy conditions at night with lows dipping into the high 60s.
A high surf advisory is also in effect for east shores until 6 p.m. Friday. Surf of 7 to 11 feet, generated by the strong east winds, are creating strong, breaking waves, shore break and strong currents, making swimming difficult and dangerous.
