Synopsis

An upper level low and increasing moisture will bring periods of rainfall with locally heavy downpours possible and a slight chance of thunderstorms early this weekend. A brief respite from the active weather pattern is expected from late Sunday into Monday. However, increasing rainfall is possible again starting around Monday night as an upper level trough moves over the islands from the northwest.
