HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Moderate to locally breezy trade winds will prevail through the week.

A typical summertime weather pattern will focus clouds and showers over windward slopes. Aside from afternoon showers over the Kona slopes of the Big Island, leeward areas will be rather dry.

Rainfall at most windward sites will generally be less than a quarter of an inch each day, but pockets of moisture within the trade wind flow will periodically boost rainfall.
