Remnants of an old front are forecast to continue moving down the island chain from Maui County to the Big Island on Monday. Breezy trade winds are expected to fill in behind the front. Tuesday winds should weaken some and showers should taper off. Kona winds are forecast to spread through the islands Wednesday into Thursday.
