Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)

Special Weather Statement: Coastal flooding is possible as spring tides occur. The greatest potential for that will be in the afternoon hours when the tide is expected to be the highest. This coupled with Fernanda swell could lead to higher than usual run-up. This could last through the weekend.

High Surf Advisory: East facing shores of the Big Island and Maui through 6 a.m. Friday.

Small Craft Advisory: East to northeast winds up to 25 knots through 6:00 a.m. Saturday.

Looking Ahead

Breezy trades are forecast through Friday, then easing over the weekend. Tropical moisture is forecast to move over the islands this weekend with higher humidity levels. The remnants of Fernanda are expected to pass just north of the islands on Monday. If that scenario holds true we expect our winds to weaken and muggy conditions.
