Looking Ahead

Unstable tropical moisture under upper level divergence aloft will continue to produce wet weather with showers trending towards windward and mountain slopes today as the trade winds return. An upper level low forming southwest of Kauai will slowly drift south away from the islands. A high pressure ridge will then build back in over the islands with drier trade wind weather trending from Sunday into Monday. A breezy to locally windy dry trade wind weather pattern will remain in place from New Years Eve through Friday.
