Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Lighter trades are expected for the next few days, with daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes affecting more areas. Moisture from an old frontal boundary near the Big Island will slowly move northward this weekend. The combination of this moisture and the disturbance aloft will bring a chance for mainly afternoon and evening showers to the smaller islands as we head into the weekend. Trades are expected to return early next week.
