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. Drier and more stable conditions along with breezy trades are expected to hold over the northwest islands. A second band of clouds, however, associated with an old frontal boundary, has shifted southward into the area and will support a slight increase in shower coverage over the windward sections of the smaller northwest islands this morning before scattering/drying out later today through Tuesday. Weaker trades along with an increase in shower activity remains possible Wednesday through Friday.
