Looking Ahead

A wet weather pattern with a slight chance of thunderstorms will hold through the weekend as an upper level trough passes over the island chain and interacts with an old front. Improving conditions with a drying trend will be possible late Sunday through early next week for western end of the island chain. Clouds and showers will continue through the middle of next week for windward and mauka areas of Big Island and Maui County. A more typical trade wind weather pattern will finally return to the entire state by late next week.
