Looking Ahead

Thick high clouds and residual moisture will linger across Maui and the Big Island through today, while the rest of the main island chain can expect rather dry and stable conditions with light northerly winds. The residual moisture will drift to the north tonight through Thursday and the atmosphere will become unstable as an upper level trough digs toward the state. Moist, cloudy, and unsettled conditions are expected to develop, with the highest chances of rainfall expected to focus across the western half of the state late Wednesday through Friday.
