    Looking Ahead

    Winds are expected to slowly weaken as we get into the weekend with relatively stable trade wind weather expected. Showers will favor our usually windward areas with lots of sunshine for leeward areas. An increase in windward and mauka showers is possible for early next week. There is a potential tropical system to the southeast of the state that we are watching closely. We will bring you the latest should anything develop.



    We expect northeast winds around 10 to 20 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 86° to 91°. Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered morning showers for windward spots and sunny skies for leeward areas.
