Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will hold through most of the weekend as strong high pressure remains far north of the state. A low level trough will move across the islands from the east, leading to enhanced shower activity over windward slopes and passing showers over leeward areas of most islands starting later today and tonight. Trade winds will decrease slightly on Monday and Tuesday as enhanced shower activity clears from east to west.
