Looking Ahead

A ridge of high pressure will remain to the south of the islands through the weekend, while a series of cold fronts approach from the northwest and stall out near or over Kauai. This will keep a moist south to southwesterly flow in place across the island chain, with unsettled weather at times, particularly over Kauai and Oahu. A stronger cold front is expected to move through the state from northwest to southeast Sunday night through Monday night, bringing unsettled weather and the potential for some heavier rainfall to the entire state.
