A high surf advisory for all south-facing shores of the Hawaiian Islands remains in place through 6 p.m. today, according to weather officials.
The National Weather Service says a long-period, south-southwest swell will produce elevated surf of 5 to 8 feet along south shores through this afternoon, then decline to 4 to 6 feet Thursday and lower even more through Friday.
Elsewhere, surf remains well below advisory levels, at 0 to 2 feet along north facing shores, and 2 to 4 feet along east facing shores. Surf for west facing shores will lower from 4 to 6 feet this morning to 3 to 5 feet Thursday.
Today’s skies should be mostly sunny with highs from 85 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Lows tonight are from 69 to 74.
Forecasters expect tradewinds to weaken this evening due to a trough passing far north of the state, leading to less windward rainfall.
Forecasters said the trades are not expected to make a comeback until Sunday, but should last through early next week.
