    Looking Ahead

    It will be pretty dry today with light wind conditions continuing. A weak front is forecast to move down the state from late Thursday through the weekend starting with Kauai and ending on the Big Island. Clouds and showers will accompany this front, especially along windward slopes. Behind the front, a dry trade wind weather pattern is expected early next week.



    We have variable winds today around 5 to 10 mph with afternoon sea breezes kicking up as well. High temperatures are forecast from 80° to 86° but feeling warmer due to the elevated heat index. Mostly sunny skies to start with afternoon cloud cover and isolated showers. Conditions will be hot, muggy with areas of haze.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Partly cloudy with isolated showers tonight. Low temperatures from 66° to 71°. Winds will be variable up to 10 mph with a land breeze developing.
