Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will continue through Thursday, gradually diminish Friday, with winds becoming light and variable on Saturday. The trade winds will bring passing showers to windward and mauka spots. We could potentially see a period of gusty winds and increased showers as a front moves down the island chain on Sunday. Light north winds are expected to bring cooler and drier weather early next week.
