Looking Ahead

The locally breezy trade winds are expected to decrease slightly by this evening. Brief trade showers will remain focused across windward facing slopes, while some high cloud cover will persist across parts of the state. East-northeast trades will increase slightly Monday, then strengthen and shift out of the northeast starting Tuesday as a dissipating front passes overhead. Expect an increase in rainfall as this weak frontal band pushes through, followed by cooler and drier air on Wednesday. There is a potential for enhanced windward showers on Thursday and Friday as an upper-level trough digs down toward the islands.
