Looking Ahead

A high pressure ridge just north of the Hawaiian islands will slowly lift northward today increasing chances for windward and mauka showers over the next 24 hours. Trade wind speeds will also increase each day through Thursday as a strong high pressure system moves eastward across the Central Pacific basin. Wind speeds will peak on Wednesday and Thursday into the 15 to 30 MPH range with higher gusts. Shower activity will also increase as the ridge near the islands lifts north and stronger winds help enhance windward and mauka showers. Expect isolated shower activity over leeward sections of each island. Wind speeds are forecast to weaken from Friday onward as the high pressure center drifts away from the state into the Eastern Pacific and a low pressure system moves into the Central Pacific.
