Unstable weather could yield more afternoon rain, storms this week


Hot, humid conditions will continue over the next few days as light trade winds veer from the southeast.

A moist and somewhat unstable storm system could lead to more frequent showers, especially during the afternoons and early evenings, when the ground is sufficiently heated.

Hawaii Island and Oahu saw the most rain Monday.

The Honolulu Fire Department reported two rescues as a result.

Two female hikers spent the night in the mountains and were returning along Koloa Gulch trail in Laie Monday morning when they got cut off by rising water.

Then, at 11:25 a.m. in Moanalua, crews had to airlift a group of hikers from the trail due to rapidly rising water.

No one was hurt in either incident. Officials urge hikers to pay attention to weather conditions as they can change at any time.

Locally heavy rainfall and isolated thunderstorms will be possible through Tuesday.

Drier trade-wind weather should return Thursday and Friday.
