Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Our trade winds are expected to strengthen a bit Wednesday through Friday to moderate to locally strong. As we approach the weekend, winds are expected to weaken and get lighter. Showers embedded in the trades will favor our usual windward and mauka areas mainly in the night and morning hours. The leeward side of the Big Island will see afternoon clouds and a few showers.
