Complicated weather is expected through the weekend. All the ingredients will be present for flare ups in the form of heavy rain and thunderstorms. A front is forecast to stall over the state while simultaneously a disturbance high in the atmosphere brings instability. The heaviest rainfall is expected over Maui County and wet weather should continue into next week with a drying trend through the work week.
