Looking Ahead

A strong East Pacific high center sets up off the California Coast with an area of low pressure just north of the Hawaiian Islands. The low pressure area will continue to drift north and weaken the large scale winds. Expect light winds with a land and sea breeze regime through Wednesday. A weak ridge builds in on Thursday producing a light east to southeast wind regime with minimal shower activity. A cold front will likely bring widespread showers to Kauai and Oahu next weekend. The forward motion on this front appears to stall near Oahu keeping drier conditions from Molokai to the Big Island.
