Another round of northwest swells is likely to bring advisory-level surf today, weather officials said.

The National Weather Service said surf along north shores will rise to 14 to 20 feet by this afternoon while surf along west shores will rise to 8 to 14 feet.

Surf along east and south shores will be 1 to 3 feet today.

Forecasters said for the next few days, light and variable winds are expected over Kauai and Oahu, while southeast trades are expected over Maui County and the Big Island.

Conditions will remain mostly dry until Thursday night, when wet and unsettled weather is expected to return, forecasters said, particularly for the windward side, due to a front.

Today’s swell will be followed by a larger, north-northwest swell late Friday into Saturday, which could bring warning- level surf.
