A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the Pailolo and ʻAlenuihāhā channels, as well as Māʻalaea Bay, through 6:00 a.m. Sunday. East winds are expected up to 25 knots with rough seas from about 8 to 12 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

We expect to dry out a bit Friday as moderate to fresh trade winds work their way back into the forecast. Moisture on the edges of Tropical depression Three-C may bring back increasing showers and humidity this weekend. Increasing wind and rain are expected for the western end of the chain early next week, but the forecast details are highly dependent on the eventual track and intensity of the system.
We expect moderate northeasterly winds to help cool things off for us today. Winds should be around 10 to 20 mph. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast with morning showers for windward and mauka areas and just isolated showers in leeward spots. High temperatures are expected around 87° to 92°.
UV index at 13 (“extreme” exposure level)
Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with scattered windward and mauka showers and isolated leeward showers. Northeast winds will be around 10 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 73° to 78° are expected.
