A small craft advisory is posted for leeward and southeastern coastal waters, as well as the Aleinuihaha Channel, until 6 a.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service is forecasting rough seas with heights between 8-11 feet. That’s because of northeast winds blowing between 20-25 knots with higher gusts.
High temperatures today will be between 84° to 85° island wide. Windward areas can expect more showers in the morning with gusty trade winds. By the afternoon, however, mostly sunny skies should hold, making for perfect conditions for the Aunty Maile Moku O Keawe Canoe Racing Championships. For leeward areas and Ka’u, mostly sunny conditions should last throughout the day with light 5-10 mph winds. Hazy skies are also in the forecast for the western part of the island.
