Looking Ahead

High pressure building far north of the islands will bring strengthening northeast trade winds this weekend, with breezy trade winds continuing into next week. The high will push a weakening frontal boundary over the islands this weekend, while an upper-level trough brings some instability. An increase in windward showers is expected, with showers most active over Kauai tonight, Oahu and Maui county on Saturday, and on the Big Island Saturday night and Sunday. Fewer windward showers are expected early next week.
