Looking Ahead

A surface trough will be moving west across Oahu through early this afternoon and Kauai tonight. High pressure east of the trough will usher in moderate to locally strong trades that will last through part of the weekend. An area of low pressure is expected to develop northwest of the islands over the weekend, bringing in a period of southeast winds to the area. The southeast winds will last through at least the middle of next week. Rain chances may also increase over the western end of the island chain by the middle of next week.
