Looking Ahead

A cold front approaching Kauai from the northwest will cause the winds to weaken across most of the state today and tonight. This will allow local sea breezes to develop over the western islands this afternoon, with clouds and isolated showers over some interior sections. As the front arrives near Kauai early Wednesday morning, it is expected to weaken to a surface trough and produce clouds and showers across some of the smaller islands. An upper- level trough passing over the state from Wednesday into Thursday may also enhance rainfall, particularly on the Big Island. A weak surface ridge moving over the islands later this week will cause light and variable winds from Friday through this weekend.
