Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Lingering moisture is forecast to bring some showers to the windward and mauka areas over the next couple of days. Moderate trade winds are beginning to weaken. A new front approaching from the northwest is expected to result in lighter winds through late Friday. Look for winds to become southeasterly, with an increased chance of showers over the weekend into early next week as the frontal system advances closer to the islands.
