Looking Ahead

A front approaching from the northwest will keep our winds light today. Increasing humidity ahead of the front will lead to afternoon clouds and showers, and even a chance of thundershowers for some spots. The front will approach Kauai late tonight and stall out near Oahu on Friday with showers and a few thundershowers, before weakening to a trough and retreating westward on Saturday. Breezy trade wind weather will return for the last weekend of 2018, and continue into the new year.
