Looking Ahead

Strong high pressure passing by to the north of the islands will result in windy trades through Friday. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas, but will also spread leeward due to the strong trades. Winds will decrease over the weekend into early next week as a front approaches from the west. Showers will continue to favor windward and mauka areas, with a stray shower affecting leeward areas from time to time.
