Pop up storms are possible this weekend; Kauai and Oahu under a Flash Flood Watch
Your forecast with meteorologist Jennifer Robbins

Hawaiian Islands (Hawaii News Now) - Kauai and Oahu are under a Flash Flood Watch. We are tracking an unstable air mass that could trigger some thunderstorms and heavy pockets of rain across the islands. Things will pick up more on the radar in the evening and again Saturday afternoon. Low pressure aloft will pass near the islands Friday night through the weekend, bringing the potential for more substantial rainfall, and possibly thunderstorms area wide. A lot of uncertainty remains in the forecast next week, but latest trends suggest that unsettled weather including the potential for heavy showers and thunderstorms could linger through much of the week.

Rough seas with a small craft advisory posted for our channels. Surf along east facing shores will be on the rise over the next several days, due to a combination of strong trade winds locally and a short-period northeast swell. Surf will likely rise to advisory levels through the end of the week. Surf along south facing shores will slowly rise later today as a moderate long- period south swell arrives.

Sending lots of aloha your way! Be safe and keep positive!
