    Looking Ahead

    Breezy trade winds will build even more through Friday, and then remain strong into next week. Clouds and showers are expected to be light and limited mainly to windward slopes, though some will drift leeward at times on the strong winds. Shower activity will increase again by late in the weekend.

     

    Today 

    Partly sunny skies are expected for windward and mauka areas with scattered showers. Leeward areas will be partly sunny but could get some isolated showers riding in our breezy trade winds. East winds are expected from 15 – 30 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
