Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will continue through Sunday, with moderate trades on Monday. A weak front approaching the islands from the northwest will produce lighter winds from Tuesday into mid-week. A mostly dry weather pattern will persist today, with brief showers over windward areas. An increase in low-level moisture moving in from the east will bring more windward showers from tonight and Sunday into early next week, but most leeward areas should remain dry. Also, expect an increase in showers Tuesday night and Wednesday over Kauai and Oahu ahead of the front.
