Wind Advisory

The National Weather Service has continued a wind advisory for the islands of Maui, Lānaʻi, and Kahoʻolawe. The advisory is expected to remain in effect until 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

NWS officials say residents should expect 20 to 30 mph northeasterly winds with localized gusts over 45 mph.

Portions of Kahoʻolawe, Maui, and Lānaʻi may see the strongest winds near mountains, gaps and where winds blow downslope from higher terrain.

Officials say winds this strong could down tree branches and cause localized power outages.

Motorists, especially those in high profile vehicles, are being urged to drive with caution.
