Rain chances looking very limited for the next couple of days. Many of us remain dry. Winds will shift from the north to the east-southeast tomorrow. Humidity will go up Friday and continue to climb as we approach the weekend. With some low-level moisture around, we will introduce limited rain chances over the weekend and into the start of early next week. Rain chances only around 20 percent. I wouldn't cancel any outdoor activities! Many of us will remain dry this weekend.

Hurricane Lee continues to be a strong Category Four hurricane as it continues to approach the Hawaiian islands.
