Looking Ahead

Cloudy skies along with increasing moisture will translate to more of a wet pattern across much of the state through the rest of the work week. The potential for locally heavy rainfall can’t be ruled out Wednesday through Thursday as weak low pressure develops and lifts northward near or just west of Kauai. Breezy trade winds will weaken and shift out of the southeast Wednesday through Thursday, then continue into the weekend as low pressure tracks northwestward and away from the state.
