Looking Ahead

A ridge of high pressure will remain to the south of the state through the weekend, keeping a moist Kona wind pattern in place with periods of showery weather impacting the island chain. An upper level disturbance passing over the area will increase rain chances across the smaller islands tonight and Friday. A strong cold front will approach the state from the northwest on Sunday, then move slowly down the island chain Sunday night through Monday night. This front will bring increasing showers and the potential for thunderstorms to Kauai late Saturday night, with the activity then spreading slowly down the island chain through Monday night. A drier and cooler airmass with fewer showers is expected to overspread the islands Tuesday through the middle of next week.
