Looking Ahead

High pressure will build northeast of the islands over the next couple of days, leading to a gradual increase in trade wind speeds. The trades will peak at moderate to locally breezy levels on Saturday, then ease Sunday through early next week as a cold front passes by to the north of the area. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas through the period, with a stray shower reaching leeward areas from time to time. A more unstable airmass is expected over the eastern end of the state Friday night through the weekend, bringing rather wet weather particularly to windward areas, along with the potential for some locally heavy rainfall and even thunderstorms.
