Looking Ahead

High pressure to the north of the islands will keep trades blowing through the middle of next week, with locally windy conditions expected this weekend. Lingering moisture will keep the trades rather wet through the weekend, with most rainfall falling over windward and mauka areas. An upper low to the northwest of the islands Friday through Saturday night may provide additional enhancement to the trade wind showers.
