Our moderate trades are forecast to ease tonight through part of the weekend. An unstable airmass is expected to remain over the islands today with the chance of thunderstorms and heavy rainfall lingering. A drier more stable airmass is forecast to fill in across the state tonight and Friday, with showers favoring our usual windward and mauka spots through the middle of next week.
