Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are forecast to continue through the upcoming weekend. The moderate to strong trades will ease slightly later in the week. Clouds and showers are expected to favor windward and mauka spots during the nights and mornings, although the trades will be carrying some of these showers into the leeward areas from time to time on the smaller islands. Weaker trades are expected Thursday into Friday. An upper level disturbance could usher in an uptick in trade showers Friday afternoon into Saturday. Stronger trades returns briefly early next week.
