Looking Ahead

High pressure passing north of the islands today will provide breezy to locally strong trade winds over the state through Tuesday. Areas of moisture embedded in on the trades will bring increased clouds and showers to some windward and mauka areas at times this week. Trade wind speeds will gradually decline during the latter half of the week as low pressure develops to our north. A cold front may move down the island chain late Friday through Saturday, followed by drier and cooler northerly winds.
