Trade winds expected to decrease
Advertiser StaffThe trade winds are getting ready to blow out of town but will leave some splendid weather in their wake, according to the National Weather Service.
The trades will weaken and turn southeasterly over the next few days. But good weather should hold up at least through Saturday, forecasters said, with just a few windward and mauka showers.
By Sunday afternoon, we may see some afternoon clouds and showers over island interiors as sea breezes prevail.
And things might get a bit wetter at the start of the new work week when a weather system is expected to pass northwest of the islands causing an increase in the southerly winds.
Here's a closer look at the next few days:
Today, mostly sunny. Highs 79 to 86. East winds 15 to 20 mph. Tonight, clear. Lows 65 to 74. East winds 10 to 20 mph.
Friday, mostly sunny. Isolated showers in the late morning and afternoon. Highs 79 to 85. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent. Friday night, partly cloudy with isolated showers. Lows 66 to 74. East winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.
Saturday, mostly sunny. Isolated showers in the morning. Highs 78 to 85. East winds 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20 percent.
Saturday Night, clear. Lows 67 to 73. Southeast winds around 10 mph.
