Election Day weather looks nice

    A weather system northeast of Kauai is expected to stay north of the islands on Election Day. High clouds were passing over the Big Island Monday.

Don’t expect a repeat of the stormy weather on primary election day caused by Tropical Storm Iselle or of the heavy rains that kept polls open an extra two hours in the primary election in 2012.

“The weather is going to be nice (on Election Day),” said Bob Burke, a meterologist with the Honolulu office of the National Weather Service.

“Winds will be on the light side,” he said. “Maybe a few showers over the mountains and in windward areas. Overall it looks like a pretty decent day tomorrow.”

The forecast for Election Day, a state holiday, calls for partly cloudy to partly sunny sides across the state, with scattered showers windward and isolated showers leeward.

A weakening cold front northwest of Kauai is expected to stay to the north and shouldn’t bring rains until Wednesday, if at all.

High temperatures are expected to be between 83 and 88 degrees, with some mugginess because of the humidity.

The forecast for south shores of Oahu, including Honolulu, calls for a mostly sunny morning Tuesday with light tradewinds of 10 to 15 mph and isolated showers in the afternoon.

There’s a 50 percent chance of rain Tuesday night, after the polls close .

The forecast for the rest of Monday, calls for party sunny skies and scattered showers.
