Looking Ahead

Windy trades will continue through midweek as a series of highs passes to the north of the islands. The trades will slowly ease later in the week into the weekend. A surface trough developing near the islands early next week may give us light winds by Monday. The trades will be wet for some spots, as areas of moisture moving over the islands enhance rainfall, especially for Oahu and Maui. Trade winds are expected to gradually trend drier for the latter half of the week.
