Looking Ahead

The high pressure ridge northeast of the islands continues to weaken and the low to the northwest slowly drifts northward. A jet stream aloft will continue to produce high cirrus clouds over the state with easterly trade winds and isolated to scattered showers through the weekend. On Monday, the trade wind directions will shift to northeasterly as the ridge builds in north of the state. A shallow cold front will move across the Hawaiian Islands from Monday evening through Tuesday morning with a brief increase in shower activity. Cooler and drier air will then move in behind the front from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.
