Looking Ahead

A low pressure system passing through the Central Pacific far north of the islands will weaken the high pressure ridge and produce lighter winds with land and sea breezes today. Daytime onshore sea breeze winds will develop with clouds and a few showers over island interior sections. The high pressure ridge builds back in over the region on Thursday with a transition to a breezy trade wind weather pattern with more typical windward and mauka shower activity lasting through the weekend.
