Moderate trade winds will continue for the next couple of days as high pressure persists north of the state. A much drier airmass is expected over the islands today and tonight, with shower activity limited primarily to windward and mauka locales. By the middle of the week, a more unsettled weather pattern is expected to overspread the state, as we begin to feel impacts from Hurricane Madeline. Hurricane Lester may affect the islands over the upcoming Labor Day weekend, keeping the conditions unsettled across the Aloha state.

Winds will gradually decrease and veer toward the southeast during the next couple of days as high pressure weakens far to the northeast of the state and a trough develops northwest of the state. This will allow increasingly widespread afternoon seabreezes to develop. Showers will become more frequent, especially during the afternoons and early evenings, as a moist and somewhat unstable airmass moves across the area. Locally heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms will be possible on the Big Island during the afternoons early this week. High pressure will rebuild northeast of the area late this week, with a drier trade wind weather pattern returning to the islands Thursday and Friday.

High pressure well northeast of the state will keep a light to moderate trade wind flow in place through Sunday. The trades will weaken during the first half of next week, with some deep tropical moisture overspreading the islands and resulting in some more unsettled weather. A more typical trade wind pattern will then return late next week as high pressure strengthens well to the north of the island chain.
