    Looking Ahead

    Thunderstorms and heavy showers are possible again today. Lots of moisture in the atmosphere combined with a disturbance high in the sky are keeping conditions unstable. Breezy trade winds and drier conditions are expected to return Wednesday. Trade winds are forecast to weaken a bit by the end of the weekend.



    We expect east winds around 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts. Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely for windward spots and scattered showers for leeward areas. Locally heavy rainfall is possible and there is a slight chance of thunderstorms. Temperatures up to 86° to 91° and humid, muggy conditions.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward spots and scattered showers for leeward areas. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms as well. Low temperatures from 74° to 79°. Winds are expected to be east around 10 to 20 mph.
