Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Drier conditions are expected to spread across the Hawaiian Islands from east to west today. A drier than normal typical trade wind pattern is forecast for the rest of the work week. We should see a surge in moisture over the weekend, partly due to remnant moisture from tropical system Georgette.
