Looking Ahead

High pressure north of the area will provide for moderate to locally breezy trade winds through much of the week. Clouds and passing showers will favor windward and mauka areas with just brief showers expected over some leeward locations. Trade winds will begin to weaken late this weekend into early next week as a ridge of high pressure moves closer to the state.
