A stationary front just to the west of Big Island will shift east of the island chain late today or tonight. Deep moisture associated with the front is forecast to linger near the Big Island through Thursday, keeping the chance of rain highest over the Big Island and Maui County. Cooler and drier conditions with north winds will slowly fill back in behind the front for Maui County later today or tonight. Weaker winds, more humid weather, and increasing shower chances could affect the islands this weekend into early next week.
We expect southeast winds around 5 to 15 mph and becoming variable in the afternoon. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast with showers likely. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Temperatures up to 78° to 83°.
