HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Breezy easterly trade winds will continue through midweek, then ease slightly late Thursday into the weekend 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 increasing shower coverage, with some potentially becoming locally heavy.
