Looking Ahead

A weak cold front over the Big Island will move east of the state later today. A deep low pressure system associated with this front is now forecast to move south and pass just west of Hawaii Saturday and Sunday. This introduces the possibility of thunderstorms. The low is expected to drag deep moisture in from the east Sunday through Monday night. Trade winds should return Monday night into Tuesday.
