Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will continue into next week with low clouds and showers affecting mainly windward and mauka spots during nights and mornings. Some passing showers could reach leeward areas as the stronger trades push moisture over the mountains into those spots. Showers are forecast to increase over the weekend as an old frontal boundary moves through.
