Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Winds are light as a cold front approaches the state. A disturbance is also pushing toward the state. Showers chances are forecast to gradually increase in coverage over Kauai with a slight chance for thunderstorms through Monday night. The rest of the islands are forecast to see showers during the afternoon and evening hours on Monday. Tuesday trade winds are forecast to slowly increase and passing showers will then start to favor windward and mauka spots again. Wednesday we should be back to breezy levels. Friday, a decrease in winds is forecast.

 

Today
