Looking Ahead

Trade winds will maintain moderate speeds as high pressure to the northeast of the islands moves away. Leftover moisture from a front passing north of the state will reach the islands this late in the day Friday through the weekend, resulting in an increase in showers. A strong high pressure system behind the front will bring fresh to strong trade wind speeds into next week.
