Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Moderate to breezy trade winds will continue through Wednesday. Clouds and showers should favor mainly windward and mauka areas, with an increase in shower activity expected Tuesday night and Wednesday as moisture from the remnants of an old front moves through. A late season front is expected to approach Thursday, causing our winds to weaken and veer to the southeast. The front may stall near Kauai late this week, then dissipate with trade winds returning during the weekend.
