HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Light to moderate south to southwest winds will continue across the state.

These winds will continue to carry clouds and showers over Kauai and Oahu through Wednesday, while mostly dry conditions will persist across Maui County and the Big Island.

Later this week, the southerly winds will focus low clouds and showers mainly over south through west sections of the western islands, with a relatively dry weather pattern elsewhere.

A developing upper-level trough moving toward the islands from the northwest late this weekend could send another front with enhanced showers towards the state early next week.
