Looking Ahead

Winds are expected to slowly weaken as we get into the weekend with relatively stable trade wind weather expected. Showers will favor our usually windward areas with lots of sunshine for leeward areas. An increase in windward and mauka showers is possible for early next week. There is a potential tropical system to the southeast of the state that we are watching closely. We will bring you the latest should anything develop.
