Synopsis

Cool and windy conditions will remain through early Friday morning, before winds begin to gradually weaken from Friday into the weekend. An upper level low will bring unsettled weather to portions of the state from Friday through this weekend. As a result, rain chances will increase, with the possibility of locally heavy downpours and isolated thunderstorms. Widespread rainfall is possible early next week as an upper-level trough pushes toward the islands from the northwest.
