Looking Ahead

Windy trade wind weather is expected to stay in place through much of the work week, with the winds slowing down slightly Friday and into the weekend. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas through the period, but showers will reach leeward areas from time to time as well due to the strong trades.
