Looking Ahead

Frequent showers and scattered thunderstorms are moving into Kauai county this morning as a cold front approaching the island from the northwest. The front will reach Kauai later this morning and stall out over the western half of the state by Friday evening, spreading showers and thunderstorms across the western islands. Unstable showers will spread to the eastern islands later this afternoon and evening. The weather begins to improve from Saturday afternoon into Sunday as the front diminishes and retreats westward. Mostly dry and breezy trade wind weather will return from New Years Eve onward into next week.
