Looking Ahead

Unsettled weather will continue across the state much of today due to a band of deep moisture from a dissipating front and an upper level disturbance passing aloft providing atmospheric instabilities. Portions of the islands may see bouts of heavy showers and possible thunderstorms at least through this afternoon. Drier conditions with rebuilding trade winds will return to Kauai late today, but wet and unstable conditions will linger over the eastern end of the island chain through tonight. More typical trade wind weather will return Tuesday with strengthening winds.
