Looking Ahead

A wet pattern will hold through the weekend, mainly over the eastern end of the state where a front is forecast to stall. A return of breezy trade winds is expected, which should begin to focus clouds and showers over the more typical windward and mauka areas. Improving conditions with a drying trend will be possible late Sunday through early next week, especially over the western end of the island chain.
