Looking Ahead

High clouds will gradually diminish, and stable conditions will develop today as an upper level low southwest of the islands weakens and moves away. Locally breezy trade winds will persist, focusing clouds and showers over windward slopes. A rather dry, stable, and breezy trade wind flow will dominate through Friday, leading to light windward rainfall and dry conditions leeward. Trade winds may diminish next weekend.
