High clouds continue to drift eastward away from the islands this evening as a weakening cold front approaches the state from the northwest. A low level trough over the islands will produce unsettled weather and showers ahead of the frontal cloud band. This diminishing cold front will reach Kauai just after midnight tonight, showers will spread eastward down the island chain reaching the Big Island by Friday afternoon. Drier and clearing trends are forecast to develop after the front passes each island with breezy north to northeasterly trade winds as another high pressure system builds into the region. Sunny conditions with drier trends and fair weather conditions will last through the first half of next week.
