Rain should linger over Oahu and Kauai through midweek

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 11:56 p.m. HST, Apr 14, 2013

A slowing cold front is expected to keep clouds and showers lingering over Kauai and Oahu through the middle of the week, when tradewinds are expected to return, the National Weather Service reported.

Light southeast winds and areas of vog are also expected to persist over the next two or three days. The weather service said windward rainfall could increase by the weekend as a disturbance aloft develops near the islands.

On Sunday, haze and occasional showers persisted over Kauai and Oahu. On Kauai, the Hanapepe transfer station remained closed to greenwaste and scrap metal deliveries due to muddy conditions caused by heavy rains on Saturday.

Forecasters predict variable cloudiness with scattered showers on Oahu Monday. Other areas of the state will experience partly cloudy conditions with isolated showers. Temperatures are expected to reach 80 to 85 degrees, with lows between 67 and 72 degrees.

The summit areas of Hawaii island remain under a high-wind warning through 6 a.m. Monday, with westerly winds of 35 to 45 mph and gusts exceeding 60 mph.

The challenge is when the weatherperson cries wolf too many times and lulls us into inaction.

These weather guys don't know what they're talking about, they are almost always wrong when they say heavy rain is coming. When it does rain hard, they didn't know it was coming.

The prediction for any day of the year is that we will have rain somewhere on Earth, we will have an earthquake somewhere on Earth, we will have snow somewhere on Earth, we will have air to breathe every single second on Earth, and unfortunately we will build DaTrain no matter what anyone thinks about it. Talk about being God.

No. Because Star is being accused of self-promotion, anti-trust violations, and gagging its commentators, u and i and all of us, by not letting us say what we please. I can see that if we say f u, then ok fine, kick us off. However if we say that this newspaper stinks, then they do not allow us to say it.
