Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are expected to continue blowing. Increased tropical moisture is forecast to bring more showers to the islands into mid week. With a trade wind weather expected, the smaller islands will see the showers focused over windward areas, but the amount of moisture being carried in will bring some showers to leeward areas as well. Showers will likely be more widespread across the Big Island. Heading into the second half of the week, the bulk of the moisture moves to the east away from the islands.
