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

A cold front will move across the island chain today and tonight before stalling near the Big Island on Wednesday. Clouds and passing showers will accompany the front. Breezy north to northeast winds will follow in the fronts wake. A typical trade wind weather pattern is expected Thursday and Friday as high pressure passes by to our north. Winds will become lighter on Saturday as a weak trough develops near the state. Another area of high pressure will be building in to our north early next week with trade winds once again returning.

High pressure building north of the state will strengthen the trade wind flow over the weekend, with clouds and showers focusing primarily across windward and mauka areas. The trades will diminish Monday as a cold front begins to approach from the northwest. The front and an accompanying band of clouds and showers will move southeastward down the island chain Tuesday and Tuesday night. High pressure will then build north of the state during the middle to latter portion of next week, bringing a return of breezy northeasterly trades. Updated: 04/01/2016 10:11 am HST

A weak cold front will push across the central islands this morning and across the Big Island this afternoon, then stall just southeast of the Big Island tonight. Strong high pressure building to the northwest of the state behind the front will bring cool and gusty northerly winds over the islands today through Thursday. Breezy trade wind weather is expected from Friday through the weekend. A developing low pressure trough west of the state will veer winds around to the southeast and south early next week, with an increasing chance of showers. Updated: 03/16/2016 3:51 am HST

A cold front will sweep down the island chain today through Wednesday, bringing clouds and showers to the islands. Cool northerly winds will strengthen as the front passes, with windy conditions expected into Thursday as the winds turn to the northeast as a high pushes in behind the front. Breezy trade winds will then prevail into the weekend, delivering clouds and brief showers to windward areas. Updated: 03/08/2016 9:31 am HST
