A breezy trade wind weather pattern can be expected over the next several days. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas with the trade winds strong enough to blow some low clouds over to leeward spots at times. An upper level disturbance is expected to move over the islands this weekend with an uptick in shower activity forecast. Drier and less breezy weather is expected to return early next week.
