Looking Ahead

Trade winds will increase to locally breezy levels by midweek, then ease toward the weekend as high pressure strengthens to our north before getting edged out by a front approaching from the west. Trade winds will push clouds and showers across the islands, focusing rainfall mainly across windward and mauka areas. Rainfall will increase late in the work week and over the upcoming weekend as the front passes eastward through the islands.
