Looking Ahead

The locally strong trade winds will be giving way to lighter winds tonight as a front approaches Kauai from the northwest. The front stalls and weakens to a trough just west of Kauai on Wednesday, allowing light trades to return briefly on Thursday. A westerly wind flow with a drier air mass then spreads across the area between Friday and Saturday as a ridge of high pressure drops south of the islands. Light to moderate northeast winds returns to the islands on Sunday with continuing dry weather.
