    Looking Ahead

    Trade winds are expected to stick around with lighter winds expected to allow local sea breezes to take hold across leeward areas and possibly bring an increase in clouds and showers for the afternoon and evening. Low clouds moving along with our trade winds will still affect windward and mauka spots from time to time. Tropical moisture from the east is expected to bring an increase in shower coverage and muggy conditions to the state tonight through early Tuesday. Expect drier and windier conditions to return by the second half of next week.

     

    Today

    We expect east winds around 15 mph. Mostly sunny skies with scattered showers for windward spots and sunny skies for leeward areas with isolated showers.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)

     

    Tonight 

    Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and isolated showers for leeward areas. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Winds are expected to be east around 15 mph.
