    Looking Ahead

    As a front approaches, trade winds are expected to slowly weaken and shift out of the south for the holiday weekend and into early next week. This means muggy conditions are forecast to return to the state. Clouds and showers will become focused over leeward and interior spots Friday through early next week, especially through the afternoon and early evening periods. Warm and muggy conditions will likely continue through much of next week. Volcanic haze will also be a problem for some areas.

     

    Today 

    We expect northeast winds around 5 to 15 mph and becoming light and variable. Partly sunny skies with scattered showers in windward locales in the morning. In the afternoon clouds will build for interior and leeward areas. Temperature up to 87° to 92°.

    UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)

     

    Tonight 

    Partly to mostly cloudy skies for leeward areas with clearing skies as land breezes take hold. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Winds are expected to be northeast around 5 to 15 mph with local land breeze conditions.
