Looking Ahead

Breezy east to northeast trade winds are forecast to stay in place through the weekend with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka areas. Early next week, winds should briefly weaken and the chance for showers will increase as another cold front moves through the island chain. Strong trades will return by the middle of next week, as another area of strong high pressure builds to the north of the state.
