Looking Ahead

Light background winds will persist over the state, 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 by late Thursday, before southeast to south winds develop ahead of a cold front approaching the islands from the northwest later this week. This front may reach Kauai some time this weekend. Expect widespread rainfall ahead of and along the front from this weekend into early next week, especially on Kauai and Niihau.
