Approaching cold front to bring wet weekend

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

This stretch of cool, comfortable weather we are enjoying will come to a screeching halt sometime Friday. 

An approaching cold front will turn winds southerly and bring voggy, muggy conditions to our state. Scattered showers are expected to ride in on those strong southerlies tomorrow and then the front itself will dampen our islands beginning Saturday morning.

The front and its considerable moisture is forecast to move slowly across the state Saturday. This system could create a significant rain event. Forecasters at the National Weather Service say it will stall somewhere over or near the Big Island on Sunday.

With this in mind, it would be advisable to get out in today's glorious weather when you can. Have lunch outdoors or take a walk in your neighborhood when you get home from work. Today will be dry, sunny and cool. Humidity is low and the high temperature in Honolulu will be around 77 degrees. Winds today will be out of the NE at 10- 15 mph with some stronger gusts in the afternoon.  

Hawaii News Now, your Severe Weather Station will be your best source of weather information as the front approaches and crosses the islands.
