Looking Ahead

A low pressure system west of the islands will continue to draw deep and unstable tropical moisture northward across the islands into the weekend. Unsettled weather conditions are expected to continue with good chances for rain along with locally heavy rain and thunderstorms possible. Expect a drying trend next week as the low center drifts slowly westward and high pressure builds in from the east.
