NWS advises motorists to drive with caution as dangerous slick roadways may occur if snow of one inch or more accumulates on the summits.
High pressure sliding by to the north and northeast of the state will keep breezy trade winds in place through late next week, with the strongest trades expected today through Saturday.
Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas, but will occasionally reach leeward areas. An upper-level low west of the state will bring considerable high cloud cover across the eastern half of the state into Saturday.
