Wet weather returns to the islands and expected to linger through Friday


A front is forecast to move down the island chain reaching the Big Island late Friday.

Showers, some briefly heavy, will accompany the front as it moves west to east across the island chain.

There is also enough instability for a few thunderstorms to form along the front as well.

Temperatures will be cold enough for the potential for some snow on the summits of the Big Island on Friday.

Westerly winds have increased over the Big Island summits, thus a Wind Advisory has been posted through Friday afternoon.

Northerly winds will fill in behind the front along with a drier airmass.

Winds will swing around to trades Friday night and Saturday as an area of high pressure passes by north of the area.

Moisture from the front may linger over the east end of the state allowing for some windward and mauka shower activity to occur.

Another front will be approaching the area Sunday and Monday with winds swinging around to the south out ahead of it.

The front may reach Kauai late Monday or Tuesday with showers expected to increase as it nears, mainly over the west end of the state.
