Looking Ahead

Mostly dry conditions along with light winds will prevail across the state through the second half of the week and upcoming weekend. The best rainfall chances will remain over windward sections from Oahu to the Big Island through Thursday where remnant moisture associated with an old frontal boundary and light trades exist. Daytime sea breezes and overnight land breezes will overpower a rather weak trade wind flow elsewhere each day.
