Looking Ahead

East to northeast trade wind flow is forecast to hold through the rest of the work week. Over the weekend, will ease a bit. Our cloud cover and showers coverage will focus over usual windward and mauka spots with some pushing leeward from time to time riding on the winds. An increase in trade wind showers and a return of muggy conditions is possible early next week.
