Looking Ahead

A plume of deep tropical moisture convergence will linger over the central Hawaiian Islands today before drifting westward towards Kauai later this evening. Frequent showers with isolated thunderstorms are forecast for islands under this convergence band. Easterly trade winds have returned with enough moisture and instability for continued showers favoring windward and mountain slopes of all islands through Saturday. Drier air moves in with the trade winds on Sunday and Monday. Winds return to a southeasterly direction on Tuesday with a return to warm and humid weather conditions through next week Thursday.
