Looking Ahead

Clouds and showers associated with a dissipated front will linger over portions of the state into midweek, primarily affecting windward areas. While Kauai and Oahu may see some clearing by Wednesday, windward portions of Maui and the Big Island will continue to see cloudy and damp weather. Breezy trade winds will persist through Wednesday, while lighter winds are expected Thursday and Friday. The light winds may allow afternoon showers to develop over leeward areas. A gradual drying trend is anticipated over the weekend and into early next week with a return of a more typical trade wind pattern.
