Looking Ahead

High pressure passing north of the islands will maintain moderate trade winds into Sunday. A somewhat active rainfall pattern will focus low clouds and showers over windward slopes, with some showers passing over leeward areas at times. Late Sunday and Monday, a deep trough approaching the state will cause winds to shift out of the southeast and will draw thick high clouds overhead. A moist and unstable southerly flow is expected to produce widespread rainfall across much of the state Monday night through Wednesday.
