Synopsis

A weak pressure pattern will remain in place tonight through Monday, with daytime sea breezes and overnight land breezes expected in most areas. As a result, shower activity is expected to be most prevalent during the afternoon and early evening hours, particularly over the eastern and western sections of the state. An upper level disturbance and a cold front pushing southeastward across the island chain is expected to result in an increase showers statewide Monday night through Wednesday night. Periods of locally heavy showers and possibly thunderstorms may affect the eastern islands. Cooler and drier conditions are then expected to overspread the state Thursday through Friday, with yet another cold front expected to move down the island chain Friday night and next Saturday.
