Looking Ahead

The trades will ease very slowly this week, but breezy conditions are expected to continue. Moisture combined with a weakening disturbance is forecast to bring heavy rainfall to Maui and the Big Island over the next couple of days. An even stronger disturbance is expected to develop near the state late this week, possibly bringing stormy weather to all islands.



We expect northeast winds increasing to about 15 to 30 mph with higher gusts. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast with windward showers likely and possibly heavy rainfall. Temperatures up to 79° to 84°.

UV index at 3 (“moderate” exposure level)



Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward spots and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°. Winds are expected to be northeast around 15 to 30 mph with higher gusts.
