HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Trade winds are forecast to increase, but showers should remain relatively sparse for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
A strong high pressure is expected to settle north of the state by Thanksgiving Day, increasing east-northeast trades to 15 to 25 miles per hour. The winds may back off, but only slightly, to 15 to 20 miles per hour Saturday and Sunday.
Showers are not expected to be widespread, although some remnants from an old cold front may increase windward showers Friday. Drier weather should return in time for the weekend, with only isolated showers expected for windward and mauka areas.
Daytime highs will be in the lower 80s, with overnight lows near 70 degrees.
