Looking Ahead

Breezy and cool northeast trade winds will continue with mainly windward and mauka showers forecast through Friday. A remnant cold frontal boundary will drift into the islands from the north later today with a brief increase in Windward and Leeward rain showers. Drier trends with continued breezy trades remain in the forecast for the weekend. A strong upper trough will sweep from eastward across the dateline on Sunday, drawing up deep tropical moisture over the islands next week Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm system will likely produce numerous showers with increasing potential for heavy rain and some thunderstorm activity during this time period. Unsettled weather conditions will then linger over the islands at least through next week Thursday.
