Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds are expected to continue across the islands into next week. Clouds and showers carried on the trades will focus over windward and mauka areas. Some of the showers could reach leeward spots from time to time on our strong trades. Showers will increase over the weekend as an old frontal boundary moves through.
