HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Trade winds will trend lighter today and remain on the lighter side this weekend, with wind speeds increasing again early next week.

Clouds and showers will favor windward areas during nights and mornings, but the lighter winds will allow sea breezes to drive cloud and shower formation over leeward and interior areas in the afternoons.

Showers may be a little more active Friday and Saturday.
