Moderate to breezy trade winds will continue through Wednesday. Clouds and showers should favor mainly windward and mauka areas, with an increase in shower activity expected Tuesday night and Wednesday as moisture from the remnants of an old front moves through. A late season front is expected to approach Thursday, causing our winds to weaken and veer to the southeast. The front may stall near Kauai late this week, then dissipate with trade winds returning during the weekend.
We expect partly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers in the morning. Partly sunny for the leeward sides. Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures from 83° to 88°.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
East winds are expected around 10 to 20 mph. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with windward showers likely and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 70° to 75°.
