    Looking Ahead

    East to northeast trade wind flow is forecast to hold through the rest of the work week. Over the weekend, will ease a bit. Our cloud cover and showers coverage will focus over usual windward and mauka spots with some pushing leeward from time to time riding on the winds. An increase in trade wind showers and a return of muggy conditions is possible early next week.



    We expect east winds around 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward spots and isolated afternoon showers for leeward areas. Temperature up to 85° to 90°.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers in windward spots and isolated showers for leeward areas. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Winds are expected to be east around 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts.
