Looking Ahead

Expect a brief reprieve in the humidity as the trade winds make a return over the next couple of days. A band of showers will bring an uptick in trade showers tonight through Sunday. A front stalling west of Kauai by the middle of next week will bring back the southeast winds, which in turn, will raise the humidity level, and the possibility of some wet weather for the second half of the work week.
