Looking Ahead

An upper level low to the southwest of the islands is keeping us on the edge of a moist, unstable airmass. Localized heavy showers should diminish by tonight as much drier and more stable air begins to work in from the east. By Sunday, generally fine weather is expected with dry trades starting, and lasting through next week. Persistent high pressure to the north of the state is expected to keep breezy to locally windy trades blowing for much of next week.
