Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will prevail into the weekend, delivering periods of clouds and showers that will favor windward areas. Showers are expected to be especially active over windward portions of the Big Island and Maui today. Cooler and drier air moving in from the northeast will keep temperatures lower than normal over the next several days. Fewer showers are expected this weekend as trade winds continue. A trend towards wet windy weather continues next week Tuesday and Wednesday.
