Forecast: Wet, somewhat unstable conditions for weekend

HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's another weekend where you'll have to keep an umbrella within reach, with wet and somewhat unstable conditions over the islands.

Showers are expected, especially for windward and southeast slopes of the islands. There's still a threat of heavy showers and thunderstorms, mainly for the Big Island tonight, and then moving west over Maui County to Oahu and Kauai Sunday.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu issued a flood advisory for Maui that is expected to last until 4:15 p.m. Saturday.

Meanwhile, an upper Kona low to the west of the state and strong high pressure to the east are interacting to bring strong winds to the Big Island, which is under a Wind Advisory for sustained winds of 15 to 30 miles per hour and localized gusts to 50 miles per hour.
