Looking Ahead

Gentle to moderate trade winds will continue across the eastern islands, with lighter winds across Oahu and Kauai through the weekend. This should allow for overnight land breezes and daytime sea breezes, particularly over the western islands and the more sheltered locations of Maui County and the Big Island. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas, with afternoon shower development also possible each day over interior and leeward sections of the islands. Trade winds are expected to overspread the entire state Sunday night or Monday and continue through the end of next week. This is expected to bring a return of a more typical windward and mauka focused shower pattern.
