Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A bit of unsettled weather is expected for parts of the state for the next couple of days as a late season cold front makes it way down the island chain. The front is expected to reach Kauai late Friday afternoon and continue slowly eastward, reaching Maui county Saturday morning. The front is expected to stall over the eastern end of the island chain over the weekend. The western islands will be under the influence of a typical trade wind regime.
