Breezy trade winds will continue through Friday. Showers will continue to focus over windward and mauka areas with a few passing leeward from time to time. A disturbance high in the atmosphere and a tropical system could possibly combine to produce an extended period of wet weather starting as early as Saturday. Uncertainty in the forecast is still very high since this tropical system has yet to form and models don’t handle these types of forecasts very well. Will keep an eye on it.
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 85° to 90°. Breezy northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph.
UV index at 10 (“very high” exposure level)
Northeast winds are expected this evening from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 72° to 77°. Partly cloudy skies are expected in the evening with scattered showers for windward areas and isolated showers in leeward areas.
