Synopsis

A weakening cold front is located near Kauai and continues to move slowly to the southeast. Light northerly winds are spreading over the western part of the state ahead of this increasingly diffuse front. Only scattered showers are expected today ahead of and along the front. High pressure will build in behind the front, bringing trade winds back to the region. A dry and stable stable airmass is expected to prevail along with the trade winds through the weekend and into early next week.
