    Looking Ahead

    A front is dissipating over Maui County and expected to linger into the weekend as it weakens. Trade winds are expected to strengthen Friday pushing that lingering moisture over Maui County through the weekend. A wet trade wind pattern is expected with clouds and showers mainly for windward and mauka spots. Humid conditions are expected to continue through the weekend with drier trade wind weather expected early next week.



    We have northeast winds filling in today around 10 to 20 mph. Conditions are expected to remain humid. High temperatures are forecast from 82° to 87°. Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward spots and scattered showers for leeward areas.

    UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward and mauka areas with partly cloudy skies and scattered showers for lee spots. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°. Winds are forecast out of the northeast from about 10 to 20 mph.
