    Looking Ahead

    Gusty trades will continue to weaken and are expected to veer east-southeasterly on Monday and will drop off much more by Tuesday. We should actually see a period of locally-driven land breezes as early as Monday night, with onshore sea breezes on Tuesday. This will be more of a dry convective pattern with some afternoon and evening clouds across interiors of the islands but limited shower coverage.

     

    Today 

    Today east winds are expected from 10 – 20 mph. Mostly cloudy skies for windward and mauka spots with showers likely in the morning and scattered showers in the afternoon. Leeward spots should be partly sunny with some scattered showers in the morning. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.

    UV index at 6 (“high” exposure level)
