Looking Ahead

Trade winds will prevail through the week, becoming breezy and gusty later today through Tuesday and again by the weekend. The atmosphere will be stable, keeping showers focused along windward slopes through much of the week. During the next few days, the remnants of a front will keep windward Big Island somewhat wet, while leeward areas remain rather dry. The trailing end of a weak front will bring an increase in mainly windward rainfall as it moves down the island chain Friday through the weekend.
