Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A weakening front will push southward through the islands through Saturday, then stall out over the eastern end of the state Sunday through early next week. A short period of unsettled weather is expected as the front pushes through the islands. The unsettled weather will likely be more persistent across windward sections of Maui and the Big Island as it stalls and before dissipating. A light to moderate trade wind pattern is then expected to return for the middle and latter part of next week.
