Breezy trades will persist through the rest of the week. The strongest winds are expected Wednesday. Showers should favor the windward and mountain areas of all islands for the rest of the week with a few of these showers drifting downwind into the leeward areas of the smaller islands. Leeward Big Island will have a few showers each afternoon for the rest of the week.
