Looking Ahead

A ridge of high pressure north of the state will keep trade winds blowing through Thursday, with clouds and showers focused primarily over windward and mauka areas. The trades will diminish late in the work week as a front approaches from the northwest, and this should allow for a land and sea breeze pattern with convective shower development over the interior of the islands during the afternoon hours on Friday. Gentle trade winds are then expected to return over the upcoming weekend, with showers transitioning back into the more typical windward and mauka areas.
