Looking Ahead

Showers are developing across Maui County this morning as a shallow cold front continues to move southeast down the island chain. The frontal band will reach the Big Island by this afternoon and stall just to the east of the island on Sunday. Cool and dry air will move in behind the cold front with a drying trend for most islands through Monday. Lingering unstable moisture will continue to drift over the windward Big Island through the upcoming week. A building high pressure ridge east of the state and a developing low pressure system to the north of the islands will slowly draw up the unstable cloud band back northward across the islands from Tuesday through Friday. Expect scattered to numerous showers affecting mainly Kauai and Oahu from Wednesday through Friday as the unsettled cloud band stalls across the northwestern side of the state.
