HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The start of the four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend could be a wet one, both for eating turkey and holiday shopping, as clouds and showers from a surface trough move over the central islands.
Most of the showers will affect the area mainly from Molokai to Kauai, into Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. There's a higher chance of showers for windward and mauka areas, but strong northeast trade winds of 15 to 25 miles per hour will push some of those showers to leeward areas.
Somewhat improved conditions are in the forecast for the second half of the holiday weekend. The trough is expected to move slowly westward, allowing a drier and more stable air mass to move in Saturday and Sunday. Trade winds will also lighten up slightly to 15 to 20 miles per hour.
