Looking Ahead

Winds will veer to southerlies and southwesterlies through Friday as a cold front approaches and moves into the area from the northwest. Enhanced moisture and instability will increase rain chances later today through Saturday. Thunderstorms can’t be ruled out along and ahead of the front, especially over the northwest islands tonight into Friday. Expect a gradual drying trend from west to east, along with a return of moderate to breezy trades, by Sunday as high pressure builds north of the state.
