A stalled front northwest of Kauai will keep light winds and humid conditions over Kauai and Oahu today, while dry trade winds prevail over the Big Island and Maui. Strengthening trade winds will be felt on all islands by Friday, and are forecast to become breezy this weekend as the front gradually falls apart. Windward areas could be more showery Friday night and Saturday before drier and cooler air moves in from the northeast on Sunday.
We expect northeast winds from 10 to 20 mph. Mostly sunny skies are forecast with partly cloudy skies and a chance of showers in the afternoon. Areas of haze are expected. Temperatures up to 83° to 88°.
