Looking Ahead

Trade winds will begin to decrease later today through tonight as high pressure to our north weakens. Low level flow will then shift to southeasterlies as a front approaches from the northwest. This front will bring increased rainfall to the islands, with showers reaching Kauai late tonight and Friday, before moving down the island chain Friday night through Sunday morning. Showers may linger into the new work week over the Big Island.
