Looking Ahead

Stable conditions will prevail through Thursday as a surface ridge remains just north or over the islands. While windward Big Island will likely experience typical shower activity, most of the state will be under a stable land and sea breeze pattern, featuring afternoon clouds and a few showers over island terrain and partial clearing at night. A front is expected to bring an increase in showers Friday and Saturday, with cooler conditions moving in behind it.
