Looking Ahead

Trade wind weather will continue through the weekend with passing showers focused mainly on windward and mountain areas of each island. An upper level disturbance will drift up from the south on Monday and pass northward over the Big Island. This disturbance will produce enhanced showers on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day across the state. Another cold front will approach the islands from the northwest possibly extending the wet weather pattern into the end of next week.
