Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

The weekend is forecast to start with fair weather and relatively few windward showers with a modest increase in trade wind speeds Saturday. A weak front is expected to reach Kauai and Oahu Saturday night and Sunday, spreading to Maui county and the Big Island Sunday night and Monday. The front is expected to bring breezy trade winds and an increase in showers. Most of the rainfall should focus over windward spots, but some showers could spread leeward on the smaller islands. Drier trade wind weather will gradually return during the first half of next week.

 

Today & Sunday

Some showers will pass leeward from time to time.
