    Looking Ahead

    Trade winds are forecast to be strong and gusty into the holiday weekend. Low clouds and showers are expected for our usual windward and mauka spots with some showers passing into leeward areas from time to time. Showers could be especially active Wednesday night and Thanksgiving day as disturbance passes overhead. High clouds will also move across the islands over the next couple of days, adding to the cloudiness. Trade winds are expected to ease late in the weekend, with fewer showers expected.

     

    Today

    Partly to mostly cloudy for windward spots with showers likely. Partly cloudy for leeward areas with scattered showers. High temperatures from 78° to 83°. Northeast winds 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 50 mph.

    UV index at 5 (“moderate” exposure level)

     

    Tonight 

    Northeast winds 15 to 30 mph. Mostly cloudy with occasional showers in windward and mauka spots with scattered leeward showers expected overnight. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
