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
