Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Breezy trade winds will continue into Wednesday. Low clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas. A cold front will approach Kauai from the northwest and cause our winds to weaken and veer from the southeast on Thursday and Friday. Sea breeze convergence could trigger cloud build ups and locally heavy afternoon showers across island interiors during that time. Locally breezy northeasterly trade winds will fill in after the front moves across the island chain this weekend.
