Moderate to breezy trade winds are expected through the middle of next week. Clouds and showers will continue to favor windward and mauka spots with some showers pushing into leeward spots on our winds. Wetter trades are expected for the second half of the weekend and early next week as an upper level disturbance develops near the state.
