A cold front will stall over the Big Island on Wednesday. The remnant moisture associated with the stalled front is then expected to lift back northward across the smaller islands through the rest of the week, keeping rather wet conditions in place across windward and mauka areas. Breezy northeast trades are expected to continue through Thursday. The trades should weaken briefly late in the week as another cold front passes by to the north of the state, with rainfall focusing over leeward and interior sections of the islands. The trade flow is forecast to re-strengthen Sunday through early next week with showers focusing once again across windward and mauka spots.
