Thursday, expect partly to mostly sunny skies in the morning with some clouds building in the afternoon.  Temperatures in the low 80's.  Winds will be light and variable 5-15 mph.  A few pop-up showers for interior leeward areas possible this afternoon.

A wet pattern is expected Friday and into the upcoming weekend as a cold front approaches and moves into the area. The front is forecast to move over the islands and stall tonight into the weekend, then gradually diminish. Locally heavy rainfall along with a few thunderstorms will become a possibility through this time, especially for the northwest islands later today through Friday. Conditions should gradually begin to improve late in the weekend, with a return of drier trade wind conditions early next week.

Surf: North 12-15', West 8-12', South 1-3', East 3-5'.
