Looking Ahead

Trade winds will remain rather breezy over the next several days. Moisture associated with an old frontal boundary will increase showers this weekend especially over windward and mauka areas. Clouds and passing showers will continue to favor windward and mauka spots during most of next week with the trade winds strong enough to blow some passing showers over to leeward spots from time to time.
