Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A front over Maui is forecast to linger through Saturday and then fall apart. Numerous showers are forecast to occur in association with this front. The rainfall will be mainly for windward areas of Maui County. Breezy trade winds will push some showers over into leeward areas from time to time. A disturbance high in the atmosphere is forecast to pass over the island chain Saturday, and could trigger some locally heavier showers along the front. Trade winds are expected to gradually weaken during the weekend and into early next week.
