Looking Ahead

Locally breezy trade winds will continue into Monday before a weak front approaching the islands from the northwest produces lighter winds from Monday night through early Wednesday. Trade showers will fall mainly along windward areas. Expect an increase in clouds and showers starting Tuesday night ahead of the front, especially over Kauai and Oahu. This front will eventually dissipate by late Wednesday, with moderate northeast winds over the western two- thirds of the state Wednesday night. A new area of high pressure is expected to build in east over the islands later this week, producing light northeast to east winds and drier conditions from Thursday through Friday.
