Looking Ahead

Wet trade wind weather will prevail across the state today due to abundant moisture and instability associated with a mid-level low passing south of the islands. Winds will diminish on Wednesday and Thursday as a cold front approaches the state from the northwest. This front will weaken as it advances down the island chain, spreading showers from west to east Friday and Saturday.
