Looking Ahead

A low pressure system north-northwest of Kauai will continue to draw up tropical moisture from the south through Thursday producing light south to southeasterly winds across the state. Expect hot and humid weather conditions across all islands, with shower activity primarily focused over Kauai and Oahu through Thursday along with scattered showers possible elsewhere. The low will lift slowly towards the north over the next 36 hours with a high pressure ridge building back into the region allowing trade winds to return from Friday onward. A wet trade wind weather pattern remains in the forecast on Friday and Saturday with clouds and showers favoring windward and mountain areas.
