Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will continue through most of the work week and remain strong through Tuesday. A drop off in wind speeds is possible next weekend.  Will keep an eye on that. Showers will favor our usual windward and mauka spots but some rainfall could push over into leeward areas on our strong trades, especially on Wednesday and again on Friday, when increased moisture is expected.
