Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will persist through tonight due to surface high pressure north of the islands. The winds will gradually diminish from this weekend into early next week as this high moves slowly south and weakens. A stable weather pattern with brief windward and mauka showers will prevail through Monday. Expect dry conditions across most leeward areas. A front is expected to move down the island chain from late Tuesday through Wednesday, bringing an increase in showers and breezy northeasterly trade winds.
