Looking Ahead

A developing front will move down the island chain today through Saturday, then stall near the Big Island Saturday night into next week. The front will bring clouds and showers along and ahead of it as it goes. Some of these showers may be heavy at times. While a cool and mostly dry air mass will prevail over the smaller islands after the front passes, the stalled front will keep wet weather over the Big Island for several days.
