Looking Ahead

The cold front passing the Big Island early this morning is forecast to continue moving east today. Cool, north winds will fill in behind the front and spread down to the Big Island by tonight. Trade winds should be back late Wednesday and Thursday but this will be short-lived as another cold front is expected right on the heels of this one for Friday and Saturday.
