HONOLULU (KHON2) — High pressure north of the state will keep breezy trades in place through Saturday, with a slight easing in the trade wind speeds expected on Sunday. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas with a few showers reaching leeward areas from time to time. An old front will likely bring an increase in showers to the islands on Friday however. The trades will diminish and shift southerly early next week in advance of a cold front. The cold front is expected to bring a more widespread rainfall event Tuesday through Wednesday of next week, with cooler and breezy conditions behind the front.
