A cold front is currently located a few hundred miles west northwest of the state.
The front is forecast to reach Kauai around Friday afternoon, then move down the island chain Friday night through Saturday night.
A period of showers will accompany the frontal passage.
The front will be rather shallow so heavy showers are not expected.
The vast majority of showers will occur over north and northeast facing slopes as breezy north to northeast winds fill in behind the front.
