    Looking Ahead 

    Weakening trade winds will turn southeasterly on Wednesday, as a weak front approaches from the west. This front is expected to bring some showers and light winds to the islands Thursday and Friday, then light northeasterly trades will fill back on over the weekend. Moisture is expected to linger near the Big Island for the weekend. A stronger front may approach the islands early next week.
