Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Winds have weakened and turned out of the southeast. These lighter winds will allow afternoon sea breezes to develop, driving cloud and shower formation over interior and leeward areas. Clearing skies at night will allow for cooler temperatures. The Big Island will maintain trade wind conditions with increasing clouds and showers at night. Moderate trades will return Tuesday with strong trades on tap later in the week.
