Looking Ahead

An upper level trough will sweep from west to east across the state today pushing clouds and moisture eastward towards the Big Island on Sunday. Scattered showers will develop ahead of this trough with drying and clearing trends after the trough axis passes each island. High pressure building across the Central Pacific will bring north to northeast trade winds back down the island chain this weekend. Moderate to occasional breezy trade winds persist through next week Friday with enough instability aloft for higher shower chances along windward slopes of all islands.
