Looking Ahead

An upper level disturbance passing overhead will bring the potential for heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms to the western end of the state today. Periods of unsettled weather along with humid conditions are expected to continue through Thursday as a front approaches from the west. The front will then move slowly down the island chain Thursday night and Friday, before stalling out over the central or eastern islands over the weekend into early next week. Trade winds and less humid weather will build back in behind the front, with trades expected to become established across the entire state by the weekend. Periods of unsettled weather will continue through early next week with the frontal remnants remaining over the islands. The brunt of the shower activity is expected to transition over to windward and mauka areas, but some of the showers will spread leeward as well.
