HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Breezy easterly trade winds will continue through next week, with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka locations.

Increasing moisture combined with an upper disturbance settling southward into the area will result in better windward shower coverage Friday night through the weekend, with some occasionally reaching our dry leeward areas.

In addition the better shower coverage, a few thunderstorms can’t be ruled out over the windward waters of Maui County and the Big Island and the Big Island slopes through the peak heating hours Saturday and Sunday.

A return of drier trade wind conditions is expected early next week.
