Fresh to locally strong trade winds associated with high pressure north of the state will begin to ease and shift to the south tonight through Friday as a weakening frontal boundary approaches and moves over the marine area. Strong northerly winds will fill in across the Kauai and Oahu waters by Saturday as the remnants of the front stalls over the eastern portion of the state.
