Looking Ahead

A trough at the surface and aloft over the state will maintain unstable conditions through today. Locally heavy downpours and isolated thunderstorms with frequent lightning and gusty winds will remain possible during this time. Drier and much more stable weather will return beginning late tonight and Thursday through the end of the week as the trough moves east and trade winds spread across the islands behind a weak front. Benign trade wind weather should prevail during the weekend, but another bout of wet and unstable weather is possible next week as another strong trough deepens west or northwest of the islands.
