Looking Ahead

Light to moderate trades will continue through the remainder of the work week. The trades will then strengthen to moderate levels over the weekend and possibly reach locally breezy levels next week as high pressure builds north of the islands. Clouds and showers associated with and old front will linger near the Big Island and Maui through the weekend, keeping a showery trade wind pattern in place. Meanwhile, drier conditions should prevail across the western half of the state with mainly windward and mauka showers through Saturday, with a more showery trade wind pattern expected Sunday through early next week. A disturbance aloft will bring unstable conditions and the potential for heavy rain and thunderstorms to Maui and the Big Island Friday night through Sunday as well, which could continue into early next week.
