Looking Ahead

An upper level trough over the eastern part of the state will lift slowly to the north through Monday. Frequent showers riding in on the breezy trade winds will affect windward and mauka areas, with some showers spilling over leeward. Instability over the Big Island will gradually diminish, but isolated thunderstorms will remain possible there this afternoon. Trade winds will gradually weaken Monday night through Tuesday night, with somewhat drier conditions likely as moisture over the state decreases. A cold front approaching the region from the northwest will weaken the trades further beginning on Wednesday through the rest of the work week, with a land and sea breeze pattern taking over. Clouds and showers will be most abundant over the interior and leeward sections of the islands during the afternoon hours. Rain will become likely over the western end of the state by Friday as the front moves in, with rain spreading over the entire state during the weekend as the front moves through.
