Looking Ahead

Trade wind weather will settle in for the rest of the work week, with clouds and showers expected to favor windward and mauka areas. Trades winds will decrease over the weekend as the ridge to our north weakens, but will resurge early next week as the ridge recovers. Trade showers will become more widespread late Saturday into early next week.
