Forecasters say widespread rain is expected to affect Oahu today. Some of the showers will be intense enough to lead to ponding of water in low-lying areas and will reduce visibilities.

This weekend's weather may still be a bit on the wet side as a weakening cold front stalls over the islands.

Forecasters say a band of moisture associated with the remnants of the frontal boundary will linger over the islands through most of the new work week.

A trough aloft will enhance low clouds and showers later today, and again around the middle of this week.  

The frontal boundary will keep winds relatively light, with slightly stronger northeasterly winds for Kauai and Oahu. Skies also will be cloudier into the beginning of next week.

Trade wind weather is expected to return sometime around the middle of next week as the front weakens into a surface trough, which then will eventually dissipate.
