Looking Ahead

Wet, breezy, and unsettled weather will persist across much of the state into tonight as a band of low level moisture drifts south over the islands and an upper disturbance passes overhead. Rainfall will be focused over windward slopes, though showers will periodically spill over to leeward sections. A return of a more typical trade wind pattern is expected Sunday into Tuesday as drier air moves over the islands. Unsettled weather and disrupted trade winds are possible during middle to latter half of the week.
