Looking Ahead

Deep tropical moisture associated with a surface trough over the middle portion of the main Hawaiian Islands will continue to lead to pockets of heavy showers or thundershowers today. The trough will weaken and shift westward, merging with a front before dissipating by Friday night. Drier and less humid air will return by the weekend as trade winds return statewide. The trades will not last long, as a ridge of high pressure pushes south over the islands early next week. Although winds will be light, it should not be as humid as we are currently experiencing.
