Looking Ahead

A high pressure system north of the Hawaiian Islands will slowly move eastward across the Central Pacific through the weekend. Weak upper level disturbances over the next few days will keep passing showers in the forecast, numerous showers will favor windward and mountain areas with some of these more unstable showers spreading into leeward sections. By next week Monday, a deep trough pattern will develop to the northwest of the island chain creating southeasterly to southerly kona winds pulling up deep tropical moisture across the state. Expect a very wet and unstable weather pattern with increasing chances for heavy rainfall lasting through Halloween for some island locations.
