HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Breezy easterly trade winds will continue through Wednesday, then ease slightly through the latter half of the week as the ridge weakens north of the area and an upper disturbance moves in.

Showers will favor windward and mauka locations, especially overnight through the early mornings as pockets of moisture move through.

As the upper disturbances moves southward into the region, there is a possibility of increased shower coverage and intensity later in the week.
