Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Today we continue to transition to more typical trade winds and trade wind weather with showers focusing over windward and mauka posts. In addition to that, 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. The trades are also expected to be much stronger this weekend.
