A trade wind weather pattern is forecast to continue to build slowly across the islands through Monday night. Stable and dry conditions are expected over the next several days with just a few passing showers mainly for windward and mauka spots. A windier and wetter trade wind weather pattern is expected next weekend as a frontal band moves across the island chain.
