Looking Ahead

Monday is a transition day from light wind conditions to trade wind conditions. A weak disturbance high in the atmosphere is forecast to develop near the islands starting Tuesday. This could cause a slight increase in windward and mauka showers. Deep tropical moisture is expected to spread up from the southeast over the islands by the middle of the week with humid conditions and a wet trade wind weather pattern starting Thursday.
