    Looking Ahead

    Winds are forecast to gradually weaken and become light to moderate this weekend. Clouds and showers will favor our usual windward and mauka spots mainly in the morning and evening hours. An increase in trade wind showers is possible early next week, with potential for a few afternoon leeward showers as winds diminish.



    We expect northeast winds around 10 to 20 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 86° to 91°. Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered morning showers for windward spots and sunny skies for leeward areas.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Partly to mostly cloudy skies with windward showers likely and isolated showers for leeward areas. Low temperatures from 72° to 77°. Winds are expected to be northeast around 10 to 20 mph.
