Looking Ahead

Moderate trade winds will deliver a steady stream of clouds and showers the next couple of days as moisture associated with an old frontal boundary combines with a weak disturbance aloft. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas with periods of isolated to scattered showers drifting leeward. Winds may diminish Thursday through Saturday with a land and sea breeze weather regime setting up.
