Looking Ahead

A weather disturbance just east of the Big Island is forecast to continue slowly drifting east and farther away from the islands over the next couple of days. Drier, cooler weather is forecast to fill in as it departs. Some lingering showers could continue to affect windward parts of the Big Island. Light trades are expected to return Friday through the weekend. Humidity levels and rain chances will begin to increase again Sunday through the middle of next week, as winds shift around to the southeast and south in advance of an approaching cold front.
