Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade wind weather is expected for the next couple of days. Clouds and showers should favor our usual windward and mauka areas with a few passing showers impacting leeward spots from time to time. Tropical storm Darby will approach the state from the east this weekend. Any impacts from Darby will highly depend on its track and intensity. I will keep an eye on this and bring you the latest.
