Looking Ahead

Expect a dry trade wind weather pattern with breezy winds today with a strong high pressure system far to the north of the state. A trade wind weather pattern remains in the forecast for much of the state with scattered shower activity favoring windward and mountain areas through the weekend. Hurricane Hector will be passing into the Hawaii region later tonight through Thursday. Wind speeds will trend higher across the state as Hector passes south of the island chain. Enhanced shower activity remains in the forecast for the eastern slopes of the Big Island for the same time period. Hector will then exit the region by Friday, with a return to typical summertime trade wind weather pattern for the Big Island.
