    Looking Ahead

    The possibility of heavy rain and thunderstorms continues through Thursday. A strong disturbance is passing over the islands and creating unstable conditions. The band of moisture that brought us wet and stormy weather is forecast to move north Thursday which should shift the threat of heavy rain to Oahu and possibly Kauai. Gradually improving conditions are expected Friday, with a more settled weather pattern expected for the weekend, with light winds bringing humid conditions.



    We have variable winds today around 5 to 15 mph with afternoon sea breezes for leeward sides. High temperatures are forecast from 76° to 81°. Partly to mostly cloudy with scattered showers and a chance of locally heavy showers and thunderstorms. If thunderstorms do develop they can be accompanied by gusty winds.

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



    Same conditions as during the day with the potential for stormy weather. Low temperatures from 67° to 72°.
