Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds are forecast to return through the rest of the work week as a weak trough continues westward and high pressure rebuilds over the region. Showers will focus over windward and mauka locations each day. Periods with cloudy conditions, mostly in the form of high clouds, will remain in the forecast through the work week as an upper low remains positioned to the west. Trades may slightly relax over the upcoming weekend as the ridge of high pressure to the north weakens.
