Looking Ahead

Breezy trades will hold through midweek, then begin to weaken and shift out of the south by late Thursday as a front approaches from the northwest. Clouds and showers will continue to focus mainly over windward and mauka areas through midweek. The front is forecast to push down the island chain Friday and Friday night, then potentially stall and bring another round of wet weather through the weekend over portions of the state.
