The west-northwest swell will build down the island chain through the day Friday, peak Friday night through Saturday, then gradually diminish through the second half of the weekend, the National Weather Service reports.

The high surf advisory is scheduled to expire at 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Mostly sunny skies on Friday. On Kauaʻi, expect scattered showers in the afternoon. For the rest of the islands, isolated showers in the afternoon with highs in the lower 80s and variable winds up to 15 miles per hour. Trade winds will strengthen this weekend and into next week.
