Looking Ahead

Moisture associated with a dissipated front will fuel windward showers on the Big Island today, before moving south of the area tonight and Monday. Breezy trade winds will continue through the middle of the week, perhaps becoming locally strong Tuesday and Wednesday. The trade winds will deliver low clouds that will primarily affect windward areas with brief showers the next couple of days. Lighter winds are expected for the second half of the week, with another increase in moisture potentially leading to increased shower coverage. High clouds over Maui and the Big Island will gradually clear through Monday.
