Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A weak and dissipating frontal band currently over Maui county will slide toward the Big Island through Friday, bringing clouds and a few light showers to windward areas. A cool and dry northerly flow will spread from north to south behind the dissipating front, and island weather will continue to be chilly the next couple of days. Another brief increase in windward showers is expected Friday night and Saturday as another frontal band moves over the islands from the north. Light and variable winds, mostly dry and somewhat warmer conditions are expected for much of next week, but vog from the Big Island may spread to the smaller islands.
