Looking Ahead

Light west to southwest winds will continue over the state through Wednesday, which will allow local afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes. Expect clouds and some showers to develop over interior sections of the islands each afternoon, with clearing skies at night. A weak surface ridge will bring a brief period of east to southeast winds on Thursday, before southerly winds develop ahead of a cold front moving toward the islands from the northwest on Friday. This front is expected to reach Kauai by Saturday, then stall just west of Oahu later this weekend. Widespread rainfall will likely accompany this front across the western islands from Friday night into early next week.
