Light trade winds are forecast through Tuesday with showers favoring our usual windward and mauka spots. A brief uptick in winds is expected Wednesday before winds weaken and turn out of the southeast for the Labor Day weekend. This will likely bring muggy conditions along with afternoon clouds and showers  for this weekend.
