Looking Ahead

Light to moderate trade winds are expected through Thursday. Winds are expected to weaken Friday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. The cold front is forecast to move down the island chain this weekend bringing showers mainly for windward and mauka spots and breezy winds. Showers will be most widespread through Tuesday as a disturbance high in the atmosphere passes overhead. Better conditions are expected Wednesday through Saturday before another round of unsettled weather is forecast.
