Looking Ahead

Strong and gusty trade winds will persist through today as robust high pressure passes north of the state. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas, though a few showers will spread leeward on the gusty trades from time to time. Winds will gradually decrease from Friday into the weekend as the surface high is pushed far northeast of the islands.
