Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A relatively dry trade wind weather pattern is expected through Tuesday with just limited windward showers. That will change though as a weak front reaches Kauai Tuesday night and slowly moves down the island chain Wednesday through Friday as it weakens and falls apart. Low clouds and showers will affect our usual windward spots during that time. Cool and dry conditions are forecast to fill in behind the front and into the weekend. Another front is expected to approach from the northwest early next week.
