Showers have developed ahead of a frontal boundary that's just to the west of Kauai, and that could spell some wet weather for the western end of the state. Some of the showers are locally heavy, and some isolated thunderstorms have also popped up. Kauai will have occasional showers with possible isolated downpours and perhaps a rumble or two. Showers are also streaming northward toward Oahu, where showers will be possible by Saturday afternoon. The rest of the island chain will be drier with isolated to scattered shower activity and Kona winds from the south-southwest.
The forecast calls for the frontal boundary to stall just northwest of the islands for several days, keeping wet weather over Kauai and maybe Oahu. The front is then forecast to push down the chain during the second half of next week. The situation is still developing and could change, but we'll keep tabs on it for you.
A High Surf Advisory has been issued for the north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai and the west shores of Maui for a west-northwest swell that is peaking Saturday.
