    A cold front northwest of the islands is expected to bring southeasterly winds with humidity and vog, followed by rainy weather as the front moves over the state.

Monday is starting off to be hot and humid and will likely turn voggy and rainy tonight.

A cold front approaching the islands from the northwest is bringing Kona winds from the southeast to the state.

The southeasterly winds are bringing muggy weather and volcanic haze over Oahu.

The front is expected to move over Oahu late tonight or Tuesday morning, bringing an increase in showers through Wednesday.

The heat tied a record at the Honolulu Airport on Sunday, where the high temperature of 87 degrees matched the record for the date set in 1974.

There’s a chance of tying or getting near a record again today.

The forecast calls for partly sunny and hazy skies with scattered windward and mauka showers this morning and a chance of afternoon showers in leeward areas.

Winds will turn to the southeast this afternoon.

Partly cloudy skies tonight will turn mostly cloudy with heavy rainfall possible on Kauai as the front passes. Oahu and Maui could also get overnight showers.

Locally heavy rain is possible on Tuesday, which should see mostly cloudy skies.

Winds behind the front will be breezy trades of 10 to 20 mph, increasing to 15 to 25 mph.

The breezy tradewinds continue through Wednesday. Mostly cloudy skies will continue with the chance of showers through Thursday.

Another front could bring voggy, muggy and rainy conditions Thursday night through the weekend.
