An upper level low pressure system to our northwest is starting to pull some very wet weather up from the south.
Heavy showers and thunderstorms have come into radar range and are visible just to the south of the Big Island. That island is cloudy this morning with scattered light to moderate showers.
Most islands will see calm winds and sunny skies this morning. Sea breezes will develop this afternoon with some clouds/showers forming over interior neighborhoods. High today in Honolulu will be 82 degrees.
Prepare for a stretch of wet weather that will start for most of us on Thursday and last through the weekend. The ground is already saturated from recent rains, so it won't take much shower activity to create runoff. Stay alert, stay safe, and stay with us, your Severe Weather Station.
Surf is up north and west shores this morning, just reaching advisory levels on Niihau and Kauai. Today's waves on Oahu will be 9-12 feet north, 5-8 feet west, 3-4 feet east, 1-3 feet south.
High Surf Advisory for Kauai north and west shores.
High Wind Warning for Big Island summits. Winds will be 45-60 mph with gusts to 70 mph.
Flash Flood Watch effective 6:00pm this evening for the Island of Hawaii.
Winter Storm Watch effective 6:00pm this evening for summits above 12,000 feet on the Island of Hawaii.
