Strong trades will weaken considerably during the day Monday as a weakening upper low moves close to the islands. The low is forecast to move northward, bringing an area of high clouds over the state through Tuesday. The lighter trade winds and increased instability could trigger more showers Tuesday, with locally heavy showers possible for Maui and Hawaii Island. Trade winds will strengthen Wednesday through the second half of the week with overnight and morning showers, mainly for windward and mauka areas.
