Looking Ahead

An upper level low will pass by just south of the island chain today through Friday, enhancing rainfall primarily across the Big Island, with drier conditions expected elsewhere. A weak ridge of high pressure along with a drier and more stable airmass will then build over the islands this weekend, resulting in fairly dry conditions statewide. The trades will pick up late Sunday through early next week, as the ridge of high pressure builds north of the state. A fairly dry airmass will remain in place however, keeping showers light and limited primarily to windward and mauka areas. A windy and wet trade wind pattern is then expected to develop by the middle to latter part of next week.
