Have a look at this rainfall map and the monthly charts that follow it: Hawaii Weather Guide Featuring Maui, Oahu, Big Island and Kauai Rainfall Maps . (Scroll down about 3/4 of the way to get to Kauai.)

My experience has been that the Poipu area rarely has a full day of rain, and you are more likely to see just an occasional shower. The farther north you go along the east coast, you're more likely to have an entire day of rain. By the time you get to Princeville/Hanalei, you could see several days running with a set-in front during the winter.

That doesn't mean it's pouring all the time, but it can be quite cloudy and gray for several days with showers interspersed. (I actually like our cloudy days on Maui, I must confess.) It might also be beautiful the whole time you're there -- it's really a roll of the weather dice. The last time I was there for a few days, it was misty (noanoa) when I landed at Lihue, then gorgeous at Princeville for four days with only one overcast afternoon. Even the locals were scratching their heads.

Enjoy your stay.

As WHYNOT posted usually Poipu area is sunnier. I have been in Princeville and it was gorgeous for the entire stay. Another time it poured the entire time we were there. Liquid sunshine.
