Looking Ahead

A surface high far north of the islands will maintain trades into the upcoming weekend. The trades will be windy and gusty today, then slowly diminish as we approach the weekend. Showers riding in with the trades will tend to favor the windward and mauka areas. More sunshine is inshore for the islands for the next couple of days. An unsettled trade wind pattern may be taking shape over the upcoming weekend.
