Looking Ahead

Light winds with land and sea breezes will continue today as the Hawaiian Islands remain along the edge of East Pacific ridge. A cold front will slowly approach the islands from the northwest this weekend. Rain showers will move in ahead of this front reaching Kauai by Saturday morning and scattered showers will reach Oahu by Saturday afternoon. Otherwise the rest of the islands may see brief periods of showers starting on Sunday. On Monday the front stalls just north of Kauai with disturbances spreading periods of showers across the smaller islands through the first half of next week. The cold front will likely push through the islands spreading showers slowly down the island chain from late Wednesday through the end of next week.
