Looking Ahead

Trades are expected to remain strong through early next week as high pressure builds north of the state in the wake of a weakening front. A band of showers along and ahead of the front will continue to impact Oahu and Maui County today, then the Big Island tonight through Sunday as the front advances down the island chain. A secondary band of moisture is forecast to drop south over Kauai and Oahu Sunday night into Monday, which will lead to increasing rain chances once again, especially for windward and mauka locations. Strong trades are forecast to briefly trend down around midweek as a front passes to the north, then strengthen once again through the second half.
