Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Breezy trades winds are forecast through the work week with clouds and showers favoriting our usual windward and mauka spots, mainly overnight. Total rainfall totals are expected to be light this week. The National Hurricane Center is tracking Hurricane Fernanda far east southeast of Hawaii and moving towards the west. It is too soon to determine what the direct impacts to the state will be at this time. However, an increase in surf is expected Tuesday and a general increase in moisture is possible next weekend.
