Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A typical trade wind weather pattern is expected through the weekend. Clouds and passing showers will favor our usual windward and mauka spots. Early next week winds will become lighter with an increase in showers expected as moisture gets drawn up over the islands from the southeast. Later next week a trade wind weather pattern is expected to return.
