The global models continue to indicate that a low level ridge
moves north across the waters north of the islands today and then
east of the islands by mid week, with a weakness at the tail end
of a central Pacific cold front crossing Tuesday to Wednesday. 

The next ridge of high pressure builds east from the western
Pacific Thursday and moves north of the islands, and then to the
northeast by next weekend, when the next weakness passes near the
tail end of a cold front.  Precipitable water anomalies are
forecast to be below normal normal through the vast majority of
the period. Modest rainfall is expected, primarily in windward
areas when the low level weaknesses occur.  The models are in
pretty good agreement on the large scale pattern with consensus
serving to resolve differences.
