Looking Ahead

A long band of unstable cumulus clouds and showers continues to drift across the Big Island this morning. Expect increasing shower coverage across the windward slopes of the Big Island this morning with clouds and showers expanding to the island of Maui later this afternoon and evening. Elsewhere moderate trade winds will focus clouds and showers over windward and mountain areas of each island. A weak upper level disturbance will help to enhance shower activity through Wednesday. Lighter winds with land and sea breezes are forecast from Thursday through Saturday as the ridge north of the islands weakens.
