Another breezy day is in Hawaii's Good Friday forecast.

Highs will be 78 to 83 degrees and there will be scattered windward and mountain showers and isolated leeward showers.

Winds could pick up again tomorrow and Sunday, with 40 mph gusts possible.

"The trade winds will strengthen starting tonight and peak on Sunday," the weather service says in its area forecast discussion.

Meanwhile, a high-surf advisory is in effect for east-facing shores.
