Chance of rain Friday? 100 percent, say forecasters

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Kauai and Oahu will be in for a wet Aloha Friday, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in Honolulu, who predict a near 100 percent chance of rain.

Kauai, Niihau and Oahu remain under a Flash Flood Watch through Friday afternoon. The weather service said a developing low pressure system north of the state will move a cold front over the western end of the island chain Friday, bringing the threat of heavy rain and gusty southwest Kona winds.

The front is forecast to move over Maui County Saturday, and reach the Big Island of Hawaii on Sunday before dissipating.

Breezy northeast winds should follow the front's passage. Tradewinds are expected to return Sunday and should continue for the rest of the week.
