Synopsis

Breezy north to northeast winds will continue today, but the winds will weaken from tonight into the weekend. An upper level low and increasing moisture will bring unsettled weather to portions of the state through this weekend. As a result, rain chances will increase, with locally heavy downpours possible and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Widespread rainfall is possible early next week as an upper-level trough pushes toward the islands from the northwest.
