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

High Surf Advisory: Through 6 p.m. Saturday for all south shores.

Special Weather Statement: Coastal flooding associated with king tides is possible over Labor Day weekend. The greatest potential is in the afternoon hours when the highest tides are expected. This coupled with an elevated south swell could compound the problem.

Looking Ahead

A front is helping to block our trade winds and winds are slowly weakening and shifting out of the south for the holiday weekend and into early next week. This means muggy conditions are in the forecast. Clouds and showers will become focused over leeward and interior spots through early next week, especially through the afternoon and early evening periods. Warm and muggy conditions will likely continue through much of next week. Volcanic haze will also be a problem for some areas starting Sunday.



Today through Monday

We expect daytime sea breezes up to 10 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 83° to 88°. Mostly sunny skies in the morning with building clouds in the afternoon and isolated afternoon showers. Muggy conditions with hazy skies expected.

UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)


Tonight & through Monday Night

Local land breezes expected up to 10 mph. Showers for interior and leeward areas in the evening and clearing as the land breeze takes hold. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°.
