Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Breezy trade winds will continue through Friday. Showers will continue to focus over windward and mauka areas with a few passing leeward from time to time. A disturbance high in the atmosphere and a tropical system could possibly combine to produce an extended period of wet weather starting as early as Saturday. Uncertainty in the forecast is still very high since this tropical system has yet to form and models don’t handle these types of forecasts very well. Will keep an eye on it.
