High pressure north of the islands will keep moderate to occasionally breezy trade winds blowing into next week. Low clouds and showers will focus over windward areas, with showers most active during nights and mornings, when they will be more likely to spread leeward on the smaller islands. Daytime heating will produce clouds and a few showers over the leeward slopes of the Big Island during the afternoons and evenings.
Trade winds will persist for the foreseeable future, but will trend a little lighter over the weekend. Passing low clouds will bring brief showers to windward and mountain areas, especially during nights and mornings. Leeward areas will be mostly dry, but the Big Island's Kona slopes will see a few afternoon and evening showers.
A high pressure ridge north of the islands will keep moderate to breezy trade winds with brief passing windward and mountain showers in the forecast into Friday. The ridge will weaken from late Friday into the weekend as a weakening cold front approaches from the north. Lighter wind speed trends are expected along with a slight decrease in shower activity this weekend.
High pressure north of the state will keep moderate to breezy trade winds blowing through late next week. Fairly dry and stable conditions are expected through Sunday, with a few light showers affecting windward and mauka areas at times.

A dissipating frontal boundary north of the region will bring an uptick in showers mainly to the windward sides of Kauai, Oahu and Molokai through Friday. High pressure building north of the state will maintain moderate trade which will become breezy this weekend, with typical trade wind weather expected into early next week.
An old front will bring showers from Kauai to Maui County tonight, and into Friday for Kauai. Trade winds will focus more of the showers over windward slopes, but some showers will reach leeward sides. Drier, breezy, trade winds weather will continue this weekend and early next week.

Skies will clear this evening with little expected in rainfall overnight. Trade winds will gradually return Tuesday and slowly strengthen during the week with clouds and showers focusing over windward and mountain areas.
A passing cold frontal system far north of the Hawaiian Islands will weaken the high pressure ridge north of the state, producing light and variable winds through the Memorial Day weekend. Continued warm temperatures and humid trends are expected each day. Stable atmospheric conditions aloft will limit cloud and shower activity. Daytime onshore sea breezes will produce some interior clouds with just a few showers favoring island mountain and interior sections from afternoon through evening.
Moderate trade winds will prevail through Friday with passing showers favoring windward and mauka areas. A series of fronts approaching from the northwest will disrupt the trade wind flow over the Holiday weekend, bringing a land and sea breeze pattern to the smaller islands, while light to moderate east-southeasterly winds prevail near the Big Island.
