Looking Ahead

High clouds over the state will thicken over the next day or two and low level moisture will spread from the Big Island to the smaller islands. The atmosphere will become increasingly unstable as an upper level trough digs toward the state late today. Cloudy, humid, and unsettled conditions are expected to develop, with the highest chances of rainfall focused across the western end of the state late today into at least Friday. The upper level trough will pass overhead during the weekend, likely bringing a return of northeasterly trade winds on Sunday.
