A weak cold front over the Big Island will move east of the state later today. A deep low pressure system associated with this front is now forecast to move south and pass just west of Hawaii Saturday and Sunday. This introduces the possibility of thunderstorms. The low is expected to drag deep moisture in from the east Sunday through Monday night. Trade winds should return Monday night into Tuesday.
Partly sunny skies are expected with scattered showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms for Maui County. High temperatures from 75° to 80°. West winds from 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph expected.
