Cold front could bring clouds and scattered showers today

  • NOAA This series of satellite photos shows clouds ahead of a cold front moving across the islands.

  • A cold front is expected to move over Hawaii from the northwest today, bringing cloudy skies and scattered showers.

Scattered clouds and showers are expected today as a weak cold front moves across the island chain from the northwest.

“A few rounds of scattered showers will be possible today into tonight,” National Weather Service forecasters said in an advisory. “But with limited moisture available most of these showers will remain light to moderate, with no widespread heavy rains or thunderstorms expected.”

The rain bands moved across Kauai overnight with some areas reporting a quarter- to half-inch of rain.

The forecast for Honolulu and south shores of Oahu calls for partly sunny skies and hazy conditions with a 70 percent chance of showers. Skies should clear by the evening as the front passes.

Winds are from the west at 10 to 15 mph.

Highs should be around 79 degrees today and lows will be in the 60s.

Light winds are expected Sunday, which could see a return of vog.

A high wind warning is in effect for Big Island summits and a high surf warning is in effect for north and west shores of Kauai County, Oahu and Molokai and for north shores of Maui until 6 p.m. Sunday.
