Looking Ahead

Breezy to locally windy trade winds can be expected today due to high pressure far north of the area. A few passing showers can be expected over windward and mauka areas. Winds will become lighter over the weekend as the high moves off to the northeast. Shower activity may increase a bit over windward and mauka areas due to the remnants of a frontal boundary near the area. Winds will generally stay on the lighter side next week with only brief periods of trades expected. Moisture associated with another frontal boundary may cause an uptick in shower activity across some areas Tuesday through Thursday.
