Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds are forecast to continue through early next week with passing low clouds and showers favoring our usual windward and mauka areas during nights and mornings. An increase in trade wind showers is expected from Saturday night into Monday. Another increase in moisture, and potentially an increase in winds, is possible by the middle of next week, depending on the movement and intensity of developing Tropical Storm Madeline.
