Looking Ahead

The trade winds are forecast to slowly strengthen through Friday night and become breezy Saturday with locally windy conditions expected Sunday through much of next week. Unstable conditions are lingering over the islands through Friday night and possibly into the first half of the weekend, with some locally heavy rainfall and thunderstorms possible across portions of the island chain. More typical trade wind weather is forecast to return Sunday with showers favoring our usual windward and mauka spots.
