Rain about to hit Oahu, Kauai

By Dan Cooke - bio | email

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The southwest winds are building on this Monday morning as a cold front approaches from the west. Don't expect very much sunshine today as mostly cloudy skies will prevail. Showers associated with the front will be light to moderate and move across the island chain fairly quickly. No flooding is expected, but there could be some ponding on roads with the heavier moderate showers. Skies should clear tomorrow, but just for the day. A more robust front is expected to slowly cross the state on Wednesday and Thursday. The front could stall at some point and drop moderate to heavy showers for an extended period of time causing flooding.

Surf is on the way down today but will come up dramatically tonight for Tuesday. The strong SW winds will make conditions less than perfect.

A Wind Advisory is in effect for the summits and upper slopes of Haleakala. A Small Craft Advisory is up for the waters surrounding our northern islands. A Gale Warning is up for all areas outside coastal waters. A High Surf Advisory is up effective midnight tonight for most North and West shores.
