A high-surf advisory for south-facing shores of all islands was extended to 6 a.m. today. Wave heights are expected to reach 6 to 8 feet.

The forecast for the central valley today is sunny and breezy with high temperatures ranging from 83 to 91 degrees. Overnight lows should fall to 64 to 71 degrees.

Easterly winds are expected to blow 20 mph.
