Looking Ahead

A weak area of high pressure building to the north of the state will keep a light to moderate trade wind flow in place through the week. Remnant moisture associated with a dissipated front will sag slowly southward through Oahu and into Maui County today, then linger over Maui County and the Big Island tonight through the remainder of the week. This will keep a showery trade wind pattern in place for windward sections of Maui County and the Big Island through much of the week, while fairly dry trade wind weather prevails across Kauai and Oahu.
