Looking Ahead

A trade wind weather pattern will continue this morning, with isolated to scattered showers along windward and mauka areas. An upper level disturbance will move over the Big Island from the southeast producing increasing clouds and showers starting later this morning into Tuesday. These clouds and showers will spread westward with higher chances for showers statewide. A cold front approaching from the northwest on Wednesday will disrupt the trades through Thursday and allow land and sea breezes for most areas. This cold front will move through the state from Friday into Saturday, bringing the potential for locally heavy rainfall and thunderstorms across the Hawaiian Islands.
