Looking Ahead

The trades are forecast to weaken from today into mid-week, then become breezy once again from Thursday into this weekend. Low clouds and showers transported by the trades will remain focused over windward and mauka areas. However, local daytime sea breezes may allow clouds and a few showers to develop over interior and leeward sections of the smaller islands each afternoon through Wednesday.
