Looking Ahead 

Light east to southeast winds will remain in place for the first half of the week. Conditions will be relatively dry and stable, with a land / sea breeze pattern expected and very little rainfall. Another cold front will approach the state late in the week moving down the island chain starting Thursday night. The front is expected to dissipate over the Big Island during the weekend.
