Looking Ahead

Moderate to fresh trade winds will prevail across the islands today and tonight, with showers focused mostly on windward areas. Abundant high clouds over eastern parts of the state will finally clear out during the day. A shallow cold front will pass through the state on Tuesday along with some showers. Winds will become more northeasterly with cooler and drier air moving in Tuesday night and Wednesday behind the front. A weak upper level trough will settle in northeast of the state during the second half of the week, which may produce a few showers over the windward slopes. A rather dry and breezy trade wind pattern is expected to prevail for the later part of the week. Trade winds may become strong by the end of the week and into the weekend.
