    Looking Ahead

    Flood advisories have been posted for the Hana side of the island through the night and into early this morning. High moisture and unstable conditions mean the unsettled weather pattern will continue today, with the potential for locally heavy rainfall on Maui and the Big Island. A drier and more stable trade wind weather regime is expected to gradually become established across the Aloha State by late Thursday, and will continue into early next week. A disturbance forecast to pass south of the islands early next week could boost trade wind speeds.

     

    Today 

    Partly cloudy with scattered windward showers . Mostly clear for lee areas with isolated morning showers and building clouds in the afternoon and scattered showers during that time. Locally heavy rainfall is possible. High temperatures from 85° to 90°. East-southeast winds around 10 to 15 mph.

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

     

    Tonight 

    East-southeast winds around 15 mph. Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and gradual clearing for leeward areas through the night. Locally heavy rainfall is possible to start. Low temperatures from 72° to 77°.
