Looking Ahead

A dry trade wind weather pattern will continue through tonight, with isolated to scattered showers along mainly windward and mauka areas for the next 24 hours. An upper level disturbance southeast of the Big Island will move northward producing increasing clouds and showers through the first half of the week, particularly over the eastern end of the state. A cold front approaching from the northwest will disrupt the trades Wednesday through Thursday, with land and sea breezes expected in most areas. The cold front will likely move through the state late in the week and next weekend, bringing the potential for heavy rainfall to the island chain.
