Looking Ahead

A shallow cold front north of the state will push through the islands this morning with scattered to numerous showers spreading across each island. Cooler and drier air behind the front will move into the islands from Wednesday onward. Breezy trade winds will prevail through the weekend as the Central Pacific ridge slowly builds into the region. A drying trend remains in the forecast through the upcoming weekend with conditions possibly trending wetter next week Tuesday and Wednesday as a strong upper level trough moves into the area.
