Alerts (as of 1:00 a.m.)

Special Weather Statement: Coastal flooding associated with spring tides (King tides) is occurring and expected through the weekend. The greatest potential for flooding is during the peak daily tide. This risk is forecast to diminish as we head into the middle of next week and the daily tide starts to drop.

Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are expected to stick around with lighter winds expected to allow local sea breezes to take hold across leeward areas and possibly bring an increase in clouds and showers for the afternoon and evening. Low clouds moving along with our trade winds will still affect windward and mauka spots from time to time. Tropical moisture from the east is expected to bring an increase in shower coverage and muggy conditions to the state tonight through early Tuesday. Expect drier and windier conditions to return by the second half of next week.
