Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

An area of enhanced moisture associated with remnants of an old front, will approach from the north this morning and then push through the islands this afternoon and this evening. As a result, expect conditions to remain rather wet across windward and mauka areas with some of the showers drifting into leeward sections of the smaller islands as well. Trade winds are forecast to slowly return across the island chain through Monday. More typical trade wind weather is expected Tuesday through next weekend. Showers will focus primarily over windward and mauka areas through the week.

 

Today
