Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Light to moderate trade winds are forecast for the next few days with showers favoring our usual windward and mauka spots. Some afternoon clouds and showers are forecast for leeward and interior areas as well. Winds are forecast to weaken and turn out of the southeast for the Labor Day weekend as a front approaches. This will likely bring muggy conditions along with afternoon clouds and showers.
