Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Winds are forecast to ease and shift out of the southeast Thursday as a front approaches. That means our weather pattern will also shift to spotty afternoon showers for interior and leeward areas instead of our usual windward and mauka showers. Friday, the front is forecast to bring increasing clouds and rain to Kauai, with prefrontal showers (some heavy) for the rest of the state. Wet and unstable conditions are expected over portions of the state over the weekend and into next week.
