Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

As a front approaches, trade winds are expected to slowly weaken and shift out of the south for the holiday weekend and into early next week. This means muggy conditions are forecast to return to the state. Clouds and showers will become focused over leeward and interior spots Friday through early next week, especially through the afternoon and early evening periods. Warm and muggy conditions will likely continue through much of next week. Volcanic haze will also be a problem for some areas.
