Light trade winds will continue over the state as the pressure gradient weakens across the area. Showers, some locally heavy, will remain focused over the windward slopes today. Widespread afternoon sea breezes will trigger isolated heavy downpours, mainly over interior and mauka sections, as the atmosphere becomes increasingly unstable. A more stable but humid, hybrid trade wind and weak afternoon convective pattern will prevail on Thursday, followed by light and variable winds with land and sea breeze weather regime heading into the weekend.

Moisture associated with a stalled and weakening front near Maui county will keep most windward skies cloudy into early next week, with showers most active over windward portions of Maui county. These clouds and showers are expected to gradually diminish later in the week. Also, moderate to locally breezy northeast trade winds will prevail for several days before easing after mid-week. On most of the Big Island, limited moisture embedded in a lighter easterly trade wind flow will bring fewer windward showers, with the Hamakua coast the most likely recipient of rainfall associated with the front.

Breezy trade winds will persist across the island chain into Wednesday. Low clouds and showers carried by the trades will favor windward and mauka sections, with an increase in trade showers expected later today and tonight. A late season front approaching Kauai from the northwest Thursday and Friday will cause winds across the state to weaken and veer from the southeast. This will allow local afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes to develop by the end of the work week. The front is expected to weaken as it reaches Kauai, with locally breezy northeasterly trade winds returning to the state this weekend. Updated: 05/03/2016 4:07 am HST

High pressure building north of the islands will bring a surge in trade winds, as well as increasing clouds and showers, through Monday. While most of the showers will favor windward areas, the strengthening trade winds will push showers to leeward portions of the smaller islands. The increased winds and showers will affect Kauai and Oahu today, spreading to Maui county and the Big Island tonight and Monday. The increased moisture will move south of all islands by Tuesday, with moderate trade winds delivering just a few brief windward showers for the remainder of the upcoming week.

A potential wet trade wind pattern is on tap for this weekend. First, an upper level disturbance will enhance the showers coming in with the trades leading to some locally heavy showers between Friday afternoon and Saturday. Second, remnants of a front will settle over the islands Sunday providing the islands with some showery trades. Between now and Friday, trade showers will continue, favoring the windward and mountain. These showers will be more numerous during the nights and mornings. A drier trade wind regime will return to most islands on Monday of next week. Updated: 04/13/2016 3:58 am HST
