Looking Ahead

A mostly dry and pleasant weather pattern can be expected over the next several days thanks to high pressure far north of the area. Clouds and a few passing showers can be expected over windward and mauka areas with most leeward locations remaining dry. Moderate trade wind can be expected through Friday night with winds becoming a bit lighter over the weekend and on into early next week. Shower activity is expected to increase by Tuesday or Wednesday as moisture embedded in the trades interacts with island terrain.
