Looking Ahead

Heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms associated with a strong cold front and upper trough could lead to flash flooding across Maui County and the Big Island today. The front will move through Maui County today, then stall out between Maui and the Big Island tonight and Wednesday, before shifting east of the Big Island Wednesday night into Thursday. Cooler and drier air with northerly winds will follow the front through the second half of the week.
