Vog spreads across the state, chance of thunderstorms remains

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 10:51 a.m. HST, Jan 12, 2014

A variety of weather, from vog to snow, is expected across the state today as a storm system begins to move away from the islands.

A slight chance of thunderstorms remains in the forecast for all islands through this afternoon.  The chance of rain is greatest on the Big Island and Maui.

Oahu and Kauai should see mostly sunny, but hazy skies today.

Light, southeast winds are blowing volcanic haze across the state. The Kona winds are also creating muggy conditions and the chance of afternoon showers.

A flood advisory for the Big Island expired at 8 a.m. after heavy rains moved offshore.

Forecasters said temperatures on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are cold enough for snow to fall,

The National Weather Service said the storm system that brought the heavy rain overnight and this morning should move off to the northeast. The heavy rain caused flooding Saturday night that closed the Highway 19 at at the Hakalau Bridge for a short time at about 6 p.m.

Winds will remain light through the week and vog and muggy conditions will continue.

Light trade winds may return Thursday night.

HPP has had thunder and lightning all night long but moderate rain, less than an inch. Translation for Oahu residents terrified of the island of Hawaii: Yet another night and day of crazy dangerous lightning, constant pouring rain, every road flooded, cars and people being swept away, life as we know it gone forever. Do not come here, Oahu. Very wet. I just spent 10 days back on Oahu. Way better than here. Definitely stay on comfortable, civilized Oahu. Thank you.
