Breezy east to northeast trade winds are forecast to stay in place through the weekend with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka areas. Early next week, winds should briefly weaken and the chance for showers will increase as another cold front moves through the island chain. Strong trades will return by the middle of next week, as another area of strong high pressure builds to the north of the state.
Today we expect mostly sunny skies and isolated showers. High temperatures from 76° to 81°. Winds out of the northeast from 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts.
UV index at 7 (“high” exposure level)
East winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph tonight. Partly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward and mauka spots. Low temperatures from 66° to 72°.
