Looking Ahead

A strong high pressure center located northeast of Hawaii this morning will continue to drift away from the state resulting in diminishing wind speeds today. Expect windy weather to persist along the Kohala district of the Big Island through the morning and into the afternoon hours today. Wind speeds will weaken tomorrow as the high moves far enough away from the state, allowing land and sea breezes to develop along southern and western slopes of all islands from Sunday onward. For next week, light east to southeast wind directions will shift to southeasterly by Wednesday with southerly flow possible by the end of the week as a cold front approaches the islands from the northwest.
