Trade winds are back and forecast to increase into the moderate range tonight and last through the weekend.

On Sunday, trade winds will veer towards the southeast direction over the western islands and the cloudy remnants of the front near Kaua’i will drift northward away from the state.

A stable light wind pattern will return from Monday into Tuesday with trade winds transitioning back to a dry land and sea breeze pattern.

Another cold front approaches the western islands next Friday with wet weather trends forecast into next weekend.
