HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The trades will ease a bit Monday into Tuesday, but locally breezy conditions are expected to continue.

Light to moderate showers will continue to primarily impact windward and mauka areas during the next few days. Some brief downpours will be possible especially over windward Maui and the Big Island on Monday.

Winds will diminish and rain chances will briefly decrease around mid week as a cold front approaches from the northwest.

The cold front could bring an increase in wet weather Thursday night and Friday, which could linger into the weekend.
