    Looking Ahead

    Enhanced showers are expected for windward areas through Monday as a weak front passes by. Moderate trade winds are then expected through the rest of the work week with clouds and showers focused over windward and mauka areas. A cold front is forecast to shift eastward well north of the state next weekend, weakening the trade wind flow and allowing for localized sea breezes during the day and land breezes at night.

     

    Today 

    We expect partly sunny skies with scattered windward showers and scattered showers for lee spots in the morning drying up during the day. Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph. High temperatures from 78° to 83°.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)

    Northeast winds are expected around 15 mph. Partly cloudy skies are expected with scattered windward showers and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 67° to 73°.
