    Looking Ahead

    Breezy winds will continue over the next few days. Expect showers to remain focused over windward areas, with a few isolated showers reaching leeward areas from time to time. Wet and windy weather could start this weekend and continue through early next week.

    By Friday, weather models are showing a disturbance digging northeast of the islands, with a possible tropical system forming to the southwest as well. The weather models are all showing some type of development but they differ on placement, strength and track at this time. Uncertainty is very high with regard to the precise impact on our weather. Based on the current models, moisture could increase significantly over the islands as early as Sunday afternoon, and linger into the first part of the week. As we’ve seen throughout hurricane season thus far, a lot can change so I’ll keep an eye on it and bring you the latest.

     

    Today 

    Today we expect partly cloudy skies and scattered showers in windward and mauka spots. Mostly sunny skies are forecast for leeward spots in Maui County. High temperatures from 86° to 91°. Breezy northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph.
