Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will continue through Wednesday, then gradually weaken Thursday and Friday before becoming light and variable over the weekend. Clouds and showers will favor our usual windward and mauka spots with some showers pushing leeward from time to time. The light winds over the weekend are forecast to switch up the weather pattern with local land and sea breezes taking hold. Strengthening trade winds are expected at the beginning of next week.
