Hot and muggy conditions will continue through at least Saturday with light winds prevailing. Skies over the islands this morning were mostly clear across the state with exception of windward Oahu which saw some clouds and showers drifting overhead from the coastal waters. Expect clouds over the islands to increase through the morning and into the afternoon as daytime heating increases with widespread sea breezes expected in the afternoon. Some spotty showers can be expected for the afternoon and evening hours. A weak high pressure north of the state is providing enough of a pressure gradient to produce light easterly flow through the islands. However, late morning and afternoon sea breezes will easily overcome the weak synoptic flow. The high will be disrupted further by a passing cold front Friday and Saturday continuing light synoptic flow. So, expect a similar pattern the next few days with light winds, clouds and spotty showers in the afternoons, and clearing at night. The front pushes off to the east by Sunday and a ridge tries to build to our north. Both the GFS and ECMWF bring light trades back to the state Sunday from east to west. If the forecast holds up, Sunday would be a transition day from light and variable to light trade winds. Most leeward areas will still see sea breezes as the trades filter in. More relief from the hot and muggy conditions comes Monday as high pressure increases to the north and moderate trade winds blow more comfortable conditions across the state. Rainfall and humidity may pick up over the windward and southeast sections of the Big Island Friday night through Sunday as an area of tropical moisture skirts by to the south.
