Synopsis

A fast moving upper level disturbance will push a cold front toward the islands through Tuesday night. Ahead of the front, winds will turn southerly and bring increasing humidity and vog to the islands later tonight and Tuesday. As the trough gets closer, showers and some thunderstorms are expected to develop on Tuesday, with most of the activity focused over the western end of the chain. A weakening cold front will then push down the chain Wednesday and Wednesday night, gradually bringing in a drier and more stable airmass, with fewer showers. Drier and more stable conditions, along with locally breezy trades are expected to return Thursday and continue through early next week.
