Looking Ahead

Strong and gusty north-northeast winds will persist through this evening due to a surface trough east of the Big Island. These winds will transport bands of low clouds and showers into the state through tonight. The winds will weaken slightly and become more easterly starting Friday as a surface high builds far northwest of the islands. Wind speeds will decrease this weekend, with a slight increase in trade showers expected.
