    Looking Ahead

    Mostly dry and hazy weather is expected for the next few days. Trade winds are forecast to gradually return early next week. A powerful storm in the North Pacific created a swell that will produce very large surf along most north and west facing shores of the Hawaiian Islands starting early Friday morning, and continuing into this weekend.



    Mostly sunny and hazy today. A few isolated showers are expected as the sea breeze kicks in and clouds build in those areas, so mainly in the afternoon. High temperatures from 79° to 85° and feeling warmer due to the heat index. Southeast winds 5 to 15 mph with daytime sea breezes in the afternoon.

    UV index at 7 (“high” exposure level)



    Southeast winds up to 15 mph with a land breeze kicking in as the land cools off. Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Low temperatures from 68° to 73°.
