Moderate trade winds are expected through Wednesday. Lingering moisture over the windward waters will provide clouds and showers to the state, mainly over windward areas under the trade winds. Winds will ease a bit by Thursday into the weekend. An disturbance high in the atmosphere is forecasted to pass over the state by the weekend and could bring enhanced showers to the islands. Stronger trades are expected to return early next week.
