UV index at 13 (“extreme” exposure level)
Northeast winds are expected tonight from 10 to 20 mph. Partly cloudy skies are forecasted with scattered showers for windward spots and isolated showers in leeward areas. Low temperatures from 72° to 77° are expected.
Breezy trades are expected through the weekend, with trades slowly diminishing early next week. A few showers can be expected to ride in on the trades from time to time, affecting mainly windward and mauka areas during the nights and mornings. It is still too soon to say if hurricane Hilda, located far to the southeast of Hawaii, will have any effect on our weather toward the middle of next week.
