Get Ready for More Wet and Windy Weather

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The unstable, wet and windy weather is here to stay.. certainly through Thursday but perhaps even longer. An approaching cold front to the west has turned our winds southerly and dragged up very moist air left behind by the previous cold front that dampened our islands on Monday.

The forecast calls for widespread showers for Kauai, Oahu and Maui County. The Big Island will also see its share of moisture, but not as much as the others. The atmosphere above Kauai and Oahu is particularly unstable, so there is chance of thunderstorms forming over those islands today. But heavy showers are possible for all islands, all day as the cold front comes closer.

Some improvement is expected on Friday as the front weakens. But another cold front is right its heels, expected to arrive on Monday. That puts a big question mark on the forecast for the weekend.
