Models and ensembles reasonably agree that a weakening front now
stalled over the islands should allow pooled moisture fuel some
lingering showers over the state over the next couple of days
under a mean ridge aloft. A second front should stall/weaken over
the state from the weekend into early next week as supporting
north-central Pacific to Alaska storm passes well north of the
state, but supporting height falls aloft remain limited. High
pressure building north of the state in the wake of this storm
favors increased island trades underneath from the weekend through
midweek, but rainfall should be confined to favored windward
