Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Limited showers through the end of the work week with light to moderate winds in place for the state. Winds are forecast to lighten up and shift to southeasterlies for the weekend. This means we could see some volcanic haze and a shift to local land and sea breezes instead  of trade wind conditions. Trades are forecast to fill back in Monday with a return to showers favoring windward and mauka spots.
