    Looking Ahead

    Locally breezy trade winds are expected through the weekend. The trades will push clouds and some showers over windward areas, but stable conditions are forecast so rainfall amounts will be light. Winds will weaken and shift out of the south next week as a front approaches from the northwest. Shower activity will increase as the atmosphere become more moist and unstable.

     

    Today 

    Today we expect partly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward and mauka spots and isolated showers in leeward spots. High temperatures from 77° to 82°. Winds are out of the northeast from 15 to 20 mph.

    UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)

     

    Tonight

    Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph tonight. Partly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 66° to 71°.
