Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

The trades will weaken and shift out of the southeast through Monday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. A band of low clouds and showers associated with the front will move across the smaller islands on Tuesday before reaching the Big Island late Tuesday night. Breezy wet trade wind weather is expected into Thursday. The trades will gradually weaken from late Thursday through Friday with the remnant moisture from the stalled front lingering across most of the state through next weekend.
