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.

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.
We expect east winds around 15 to 20 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 85° to 90°. Mostly sunny skies with scattered windward showers in the morning. Not a lot of rain for leeward spots.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Mostly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and partly cloudy with isolated showers for leeward areas. After midnight, shower coverage is expected to increase. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Winds are expected to be east around 15 to 20 mph.
