Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Hot and humid conditions with the chance for some enhanced showers will continue into early Thursday. Drier trade winds move in from the east as the tropical moisture exits the state. Breezy trade winds and much more comfortable conditions are then expected Friday through early next week, with showers focused over our usual windward and mauka areas. The weather may get a bit more active by mid to late next week. Some models are showing a tropical cyclone could approach the island chain from the east.
