Looking Ahead

An area of low pressure northwest of Kauai will lift northeastward over the next couple days, dragging a weakening front toward the islands. Deep tropical moisture and showers associated with the front will overspread Kauai tonight and Tuesday, then linger over the western islands through the middle of the week as the front stalls out and slowly dissipates. Hot and muggy conditions can be expected across much of the island chain as winds shift around to the south and southeast ahead of the front. A more typical trade wind weather pattern is expected to return Friday through next weekend as high pressure builds to the north of the islands.
