Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A disturbance high in the atmosphere and west of Kauai is forecast to keep conditions over the islands unstable through at least the coming weekend. Gentle trade winds are expected through Thursday but will be light enough to allow afternoon sea breezes to develop and produce clouds and showers over interior spots. Nighttime land breezes will produce partial clearing at night and cooler temperatures. The weather feature mentioned above may deepen during the second half of the work week and bring an increase in clouds and showers. Will keep an eye on it.

 

Today
