Wind advisories posted as strong trades build over the islands this weekend

Weather Blog

Parts of Maui, Lanai and Hawaii Island under a wind advisory through Saturday.

Breezy to locally windy trades will prevail through the weekend as strong high pressure settles northeast of the state.

Low clouds moving along in the trade wind flow will focus rainfall over windward areas, but some showers will spread leeward at times.

An increase in showers is expected Saturday night through Monday morning as a band of moisture moves through.

Trade winds are expected to gradually ease Monday through late next week, while continuing to deliver passing clouds and showers.
