Looking Ahead

Trade winds are expected through next week, bringing clouds and a few brief showers to windward areas, with leeward areas remaining mostly dry. Light to moderate wind speeds are expected over the weekend but breezy conditions are expected for most of next week. A dissipating front near the Big Island will fuel enhanced windward showers on the Big Island through early Saturday before shifting south.
