We have another hot and humid day in store for us today. We expect high temperatures from 86° to 91°. Variable winds are expected from 5 to 15 mph with local sea breezes developing for leeward areas in the afternoon. Mostly clear mornings with isolated windward showers and afternoon cloud cover and scattered showers for leeward areas.
UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)
Variable winds are expected from 5 to 15 mph tonight with local land breezes developing especially for leeward spots as the night progresses. Partly cloudy skies and isolated showers to start but clearing as the land breeze takes hold. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.
Looking Ahead & Fourth of July weekend
We expect light trade winds to start returning to the smaller islands between Thursday night and Friday followed by some strengthening over the fourth of July weekend. A pocket of dry air now draped over the smaller islands, will slowly become wetter as the trade winds return. So, the absence of the afternoon showers may reappear most likely Friday afternoon. Light to moderate trades are forecast for the weekend which means showers for the windward and mountain areas especially nights and mornings, and isolated to scattered showers for the leeward and interior sections of all islands.
