Synopsis

High pressure north of the area will maintain moderate northeasterly trade winds across the Aloha State today. Low clouds and showers associated with an old frontal boundary will continue along north and northeast facing sections of the state this morning, then gradually taper off later today and tonight. The trades are expected to strengthen slightly starting late Saturday. Expect a relatively dry and stable trade wind weather pattern to persist through most of the New Years Holiday Weekend, with brief trade showers mainly along windward sections.
