Looking Ahead

Resurgent trade winds will back off tonight and gradually shift out of the southeast and south across much of the state by Sunday. While windward Big Island will likely experience typical shower activity through much of the upcoming week, most of the state will return to a stable land and sea breeze pattern, featuring afternoon clouds and a few showers over island terrain and partial clearing at night. A passing front may enhance shower activity over Kauai late Monday, with another front potentially affecting the area late Thursday or Friday.
