Looking Ahead

Warm, moist southwesterly winds will continue across the area today ahead of a cold front northwest of Kauai. By late today, this front will push southeastward down the chain, ushering in a return of trade flow. This front will reach the Big Island Friday or Saturday before stalling. Remnant moisture along this front will keep the trades rather showery through the weekend and into next week.
