HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Stable and dry conditions will continue through Saturday.

Light to moderate east- southeasterly winds are expected over the eastern end of the state with lighter winds farther west. Afternoon sea breezes will give way to overnight land breezes through Saturday with hazy conditions statewide.

A brief return to typical trade wind flow could provide a modest increase in windward showers late Saturday and Sunday.

As a front passes north of the state early next week, showers may increase further.
