Looking Ahead

Moist and showery conditions are forecast to linger through the first half of the week over the eastern end of the state as a remnant frontal boundary stalls and dissipates in the vicinity of the Big Island tonight through Wednesday. Drier and more stable conditions along with a return of breezy trades are expected over the smaller northwest islands in the wake of this boundary. Any showers that do develop over the smaller islands will favor windward and mauka locations each day. Moderate to breezy trades will likely hold through the second half of the week, with some increase in shower coverage possible Wednesday through Friday.
