Looking Ahead

Strong trade winds are forecast through this weekend and into early next week. Passing showers will favor our usual windward and mauka spots, with a few showers pushing over to leeward areas. A wet trade wind weather pattern is expected to develop Sunday and continue through much of next week. The wettest conditions are expected over the eastern end of the island chain.


Today & Sunday 

We expect northeast winds increasing to about 15 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Partly sunny skies are forecast with windward showers likely. Lots of leeward sunshine and possible isolated showers. Temperatures up to 77° to 82°. Sunday, mostly cloudy for windward areas with scattered leeward showers and showers likely in windward spots. Winds will shift a bit east and could reach 45 mph on the gusts.

UV index at 5 (“moderate” exposure level)


Tonight & Sunday Night

Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward spots and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 68° to 73°. Winds are expected to be east around 15 to 30 mph, gusting to 40 mph.
