Waves of MVFR showers with embedded IFR visibilities are affecting Kauai and will spread to Oahu this morning, located within a larger prefrontal convergence band. This band will shift eastward through the day, affecting Maui County later in the afternoon/evening. Isolated thunderstorms are embedded within the convergence band as well. In the meantime, afternoon showers will develop across Maui County/Big Island, with most activity initially focused across south and southeastern facing sections. The cold front will follow from west to east tonight/Tuesday, shifting winds northwest and bringing more prevailing VFR ceilings.
