Trade winds can be expected over the next couple of day. Clouds and passing showers will favor windward and mauka areas during that time. Trade winds are forecast to strengthen a bit midweek. Toward the second half of the week another front is expected to approach the islands from the northwest. This will result in a decrease in trade winds.
The latest forecast track for hurricane Olaf shows the system moving northward far east of the Hawaiian Islands over the weekend. We will keep an eye on this and bring you the latest.
Today we expect mostly sunny skies with scattered morning showers in windward and mauka areas and just isolated showers for leeward spots. High temperatures from 84° to 89°. East winds are forecast from 15 to 20 mph.
