Looking Ahead

Increasing trade winds today as a trough near Kauai moves west away from the islands. As the trade winds become established, expect an increase in windward showers, but the trades may be light enough to allow sea breezes to bring afternoon clouds and a few showers to leeward areas today. Trade wind showers are expected to diminish Wednesday as Hurricane Norman draws closer to the islands. Current forecasts anticipate that Norman will turn before reaching the islands, and if this occurs, light winds will prevail late in the week and into next weekend.
