Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds are expected to persist through Saturday. The strong trades will continue to transport low clouds and showers that will focus over windward areas, with a few brief showers carried over to leeward sections of some of the smaller islands. The trades are expected to ease somewhat from Sunday through early next week. Trade showers may increase slightly from Friday night through Saturday, with more widespread rainfall possible across parts of the state starting next Tuesday.
