Looking Ahead

Light winds are expected to hold through Friday. Sea breezes could generate light showers over leeward and interior areas Friday afternoon. The trades are expected to return during the weekend with shower activity shifting to windward and mauka areas. A front passing well to the north of the islands will briefly bring back light wind conditions on Monday, then the trades quickly return on Tuesday.
