Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A slight increase in trade winds is expected for Tuesday and Wednesday before winds are forecast to drop off later in the week. Clouds and passing showers will tend to favor windward and mauka areas with just a few showers expected elsewhere.

The latest forecast track for hurricane Olaf shows the system moving northward far east of the Hawaiian Islands over the weekend. If the forecast holds, Olaf is not expected to directly impact our weather but will bring warning level surf to some east shores. We will keep an eye on this and bring you the latest.
