Synopsis

Mainly dry weather is expected tonight through Christmas day, with only a few light windward showers expected. A weak front will drop southward into Kauai late tonight through Christmas morning however, increasing windward showers here. Unsettled weather is on the way for Tuesday and Wednesday as a developing low passes close to the islands, bringing southerly winds, and increasing clouds and showers. Improving conditions are expected on Thursday, as the front shifts east of the state and drier air and north- northeasterly winds move down the islands chain. Trade winds are expected Friday through next weekend, with showers focused primarily over windward and muaka areas.
