Looking Ahead

A ridge over the islands will weaken and southerly winds will develop as a cold front approaches the islands from the northwest. The front will reach Kauai on Thursday morning, move across Oahu late Thursday afternoon and over Maui County Thursday night. The remnants of the front will reach the Big Island on Friday. A brief period of trade winds is forecast for Friday afternoon through Saturday as a migratory high passes eastward through the weekend. Another cold front will move into the Hawaii region for the first half of next week bringing some additional showers to the western islands.
