Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Our winds are expected to weaken to moderate levels for the weekend. Showers and humidity are forecast to increase, mainly for Maui County and the Big Island early next week as tropical moisture moves in from the southeast. We could see an increase for the Big Island Sunday, then pushing up the state Monday through the middle of the work week. Breezy trades and drier air are expected to return for the second half of the week.
