Looking Ahead

While a front keeps the smaller islands quite wet through the weekend, the Big Island looks to remain outside of the main band of clouds and only isolated showers are expected through Friday until trade winds bring limited scattered showers to windward areas Friday night. Humid conditions are expected to continue through the weekend with drier trade wind weather expected early next week.
