Looking Ahead

Surface high pressure far north of the islands will maintain trade winds across the state through the middle of next week, with locally windy conditions developing this weekend. Lingering moisture will also keep a wet trade weather pattern in place through this weekend, with most rainfall falling over windward and mauka areas. An upper-level low developing northwest of the islands may provide additional enhancement to the trade showers, with locally heavy downpours possible over some windward sections this weekend.
