Looking Ahead

Warm and humid conditions will continue into the weekend as low pressure that brought the heavy showers over portions of the state passes to the north. Winds will remain light and variable into Saturday before light to moderate trades temporarily return through the second half of the weekend. Clouds and showers will focus mostly over interior locations through the afternoon hours today, then become focused over windward and mauka locations later Saturday through Monday as trades return. Another wet period is possible next week as a cold front approaches from the west and the winds shift out of the south and strengthen by midweek.
