Looking Ahead

Cool and gusty north winds are expected to continue tonight, between a cold front southeast of the Big Island and high pressure northwest of the islands. Winds will gradually turn to a more easterly direction over the next few days, but remain locally breezy through the weekend. A developing low northwest of the state will cause winds to weaken and turn southerly once again early next week, with an increasing chance of showers.
