Looking Ahead

A complex weather pattern will produce wet weather conditions across the western half of the state for at least the next several days. The highest chances for rainfall are expected over Kauai this morning with local heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms possible. Periods of wet weather conditions and showers will continue with kona winds developing through the first half of next week as a low pressure system rides along the stalled frontal boundary just northwest of the islands. On Thursday the cold front will sweep down the island chain spreading showers across each island through Friday.
