HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -
There's a chance for pockets of heavy showers and perhaps even a thunderstorm or two Wednesday as unstable conditions combine with surface moisture over the islands.
The moisture and instability are coming from an upper level low to the northwest of the state, which is drawing up a lot of showers from the southwest.
Kauai and Oahu will have the highest chance for the heavier showers as they are closest to the low. Earlier, thunderstorms developed in the vicinity of Kauai, so forecasters are keeping a slight chance of thunderstorms for the Garden Isle through this evening.
The upper low should move further northwest away from the state. Trade winds are expected to return Thursday and briefly increase Thursday night and Friday. Weekend weather may be on the wet and muggy side as moisture from former tropical cyclone Enrique approaches Hawaii.
