Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Enhanced showers are expected for windward areas through Monday as a weak front passes by. Moderate trade winds are then expected through the rest of the work week with clouds and showers focused over windward and mauka areas. A cold front is forecast to shift eastward well north of the state next weekend, weakening the trade wind flow and allowing for localized sea breezes during the day and land breezes at night.
