Looking Ahead

An upper level low west of the islands combined with enhanced moisture spreading up from the southeast, will maintain the threat of flooding into Sunday morning. The upper level low will move away early next week, but lingering moisture over the islands will keep the trades somewhat wet. Wind speeds will moderate somewhat after the weekend with a weaker high passing north of the area Tuesday.
