Looking Ahead 

Mostly dry weather can be expected through Thursday. A front is forecasted to move down the island chain from the northwest Thursday night and Friday accompanied by some passing showers. The front is expected to stall and dissipate near the Big Island over the weekend. Weak high pressure will build in north of the area behind the front. Another front will begin to approach the area from the northwest early next week.
