Looking Ahead

A trade wind weather pattern can be expected over the next several days thanks to high pressure far north northeast of the area. Clouds and passing showers will tend to favor windward and mauka areas. Some increase in shower activity is expected late Sunday through Tuesday as an area of enhanced moisture embedded in the trades moves westward across the area.
