southwest of the islands will remain nearly stationary in the next
few days. A ridge to the southeast is slowly migrating eastward.
With an unstable profile as depicted by the RAOB this afternoon,
the trough will continue to spread scattered showers tonight and
Wednesday. A high pressure approaching from the southwest will
introduce the breezy trades on Thursday night. Therefore, expect
scattered showers and variable winds tonight through Thursday.
The high pressure will elevate winds to breezy trades on Thursday
night.

maintain breezy trades through Saturday night. The trough is
expected to descend back over the islands on Sunday. This trough
will bring scattered showers and diminish winds to gentle on
