HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light winds will persist into next week with limited rain expected over western slopes.

Wind flow will be light enough to allow development of land/sea breezes and modest interior afternoon cloud build-ups.

Light to moderate trade winds should begin to return by late next week as the subtropical ridge shifts back north of the islands.
