    Looking Ahead

    Trade winds are forecast to pick up in strength to breezy levels today. On Friday they may weaken slightly. Clouds and showers are expected to focus over our usual windward and mauka spots until the winds weaken and shift out of the southeast and south. This is expected starting Saturday and through the weekend resulting in warmer, more humid weather with afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes taking control of the forecast. Volcanic haze is also likely to spread over most of the state starting this weekend.

     

    Today

    We expect northeast winds from 15 to 25 mph today. Partly sunny skies are forecast with scattered windward showers. Sunshine for leeward areas. Temperatures up to 85° to 90°.

    UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)

     

    Tonight 

    Partly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward spots. Leeward spots with isolated showers. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Winds are expected to be northeast winds around 15 to 20 mph.
