Looking Ahead

Moderate to breezy trade winds will build across the state today as a weak trough near Kauai lifts away. Clouds and showers will favor windward slopes of all islands. A few afternoon showers will flare up along leeward slopes of the Big Island and on Kauai, where deeper moisture and higher humidity will linger. Winds will shift out of the southeast and south on Sunday and Monday, bringing humid conditions and potentially wet weather across the western end of the state through the middle of next week.
