Super Bowl Sunday Weather Forecast, Front Approaching
Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)
High Surf Advisory: North & east shores of Maui & Molokai through 6 p.m. Saturday.
Special Weather Statement: A strong front approaches the Aloha State from the northwest this weekend. Southwest winds will increase ahead of this front Sunday and Sunday night. Kona winds such as these can cause localized problems on the typical windward side of each island, as they blow downslope from the mountains and accelerate. A narrow band of gusty heavy showers, and possibly a few embedded thundershowers, is expected to accompany the front as it passes through. Our forecast has the front reaching Kauai late Sunday night, Oahu Monday morning, Maui County Monday afternoon, and the Big Island Monday night. The front appears as though it will be moving fast enough to prevent widespread significant flooding problems, but the rain may be briefly heavy enough to cause localized ponding or minor flooding.

A cold front begins to approach the islands and Kona winds are forecast to develop ahead of the front starting Saturday. Sunday through Monday those winds could get gusty and heavy showers with embedded thunderstorms are possible as the front moves through. Timing is as follows: Kauai Sunday night, Oahu and into Maui County on Monday, Maui County and into the Big Island Monday night and into Tuesday. Drier conditions are expected Tuesday night through Thursday. Another cold front could move into the islands for the end of next week.
