Brighter days ahead and a fond farewell to our GM Rick Blangiardi

Trade winds will start to decrease on Thursday as a front approaches the islands from the northwest. A stubborn upper level trough west of the islands will keep considerable high clouds around through Thursday, but drier air aloft is expected to overspread the state with more sunshine in time for the weekend. In the meantime, a dissipating cold front will push down the chain Friday. A band of showers is expected to accompany the front, followed by a return of stronger trades. A new high passing north of the islands on Monday should bring us locally windy trades with some windward showers especially near the Big Island, but considerable leeward sunshine.
