    Looking Ahead

    A ridge of high pressure to the north of the state will keep a moderate to breezy trade wind flow in place through Wednesday, with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka areas. The trades will keep blowing through the remainder of the week and into the weekend, but a brief easing in the trade wind speeds is expected Wednesday night and Thursday as a front passes by well north of the islands. Unsettled conditions may return Wednesday night through Friday as an upper level trough and deep tropical moisture move through the area. Typical trade wind weather is then expected to follow for the upcoming weekend.
