Looking Ahead

The trade winds will strengthen across the islands through tonight, with strong trades then expected statewide over the weekend into early next week. Meanwhile, a weakening front will push slowly down the island chain tonight through Sunday, bringing with it a band of showery low clouds, with windward and mauka areas expected to see the most shower activity. A more typical trade wind shower pattern will return to the entire state Sunday night through much of next week, with showers favoring windward and mauka areas and a stray shower spilling leeward from time to time. The trades may ease a bit during the middle of next week as a front passes by north of the islands. A new strong high building north of the state late next week will likely get the trade winds cranking once again.
