Vog, humidity and rain expected as cold front approaches Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:43 p.m. HST, Jan 31, 2014

Kona winds are likely to bring vog and muggy conditions today and rain next week as a cold front moves over the islands.

People planning outdoor Super Bowl parties may need rain contingency plans. But forecasters say the front should pass Oahu and Kauai by Sunday.

"Sunday doesn't look terrible," National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Jacobson said. "There's still going to be some rain."

"We wouldn't expect totally dry conditions," he added, "but it doesn't appear that there will be an all-day rain situation. It doesn't look like a wash out."

Showers may pop up on Oahu this afternoon through Saturday.

Rain should be heaviest as the front passes Kauai on Saturday and Oahu later that night.

Scattered showers are likely through next week as moisture from the front lingers over the state and is expected to stall, bringing rain for much of the week until tradewinds return on Friday.

This is like the 4th weekend in a row that Mother Nature is messing with my golf schedule. Pres Obama needs to utilize his esecutive powers to defer the rain to the weekdays.

He golfs everyday; since he's never had a job in his life, he has no idea what real work is.

Humidity and rain? Here in Hawaii? Stop the presses. I'm sure we'll be advised next that this humidity-and-rain weather event will not generate a Pacific-wide tsunami.

Don't blame any kind of climate change/global warming what ever you do. I remember it was like this for years in the late 60's and early 70's. We just getting back to "normal". LOL

I can remember in yesteryear when it would get cold in Hawaii you would see all the High School Varsity Jackets come out of the closets. Just seeing the jackets was a confirmation that it was cold and Wahiawa was probably way down to 57 temp.
