Increased moisture is forecast to move over the islands from the southeast over the next couple of days. The threat of heavy rainfall will also increase. At first, heavy showers will favor windward areas of the islands, affecting the Big Island and Maui into Thursday. As a weak low develops northwest of Kauai this weekend, winds will shift to the south, and showers, some locally heavy, will also affect leeward areas. The unsettled weather pattern may continue over portions of the state through early next week.
Today mostly cloudy skies are expected with showers likely for windward areas. Partly cloudy skies and scattered showers are forecast for leeward areas of Maui County. High temperatures from 84° to 89°. East winds are forecast from 10 to 20 mph.
UV index at 6 (“high” exposure level)
