Windy trade wind weather is expected to stay in place through much of the work week, with the winds slowing down slightly Friday and into the weekend. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka areas through the period, but showers will reach leeward areas from time to time as well due to the strong trades.
We expect northeast winds around 15 to 30 mph this weekend with gusts up to 50 mph. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecast with scattered windward showers and isolated leeward showers in the afternoon. Hazy skies in some spots. Temperatures up to 82° to 87°.
UV index at 8 (“very high” exposure level)
Mostly cloudy skies with windward showers likely and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°. Winds are expected to be out of the northeast around 15 to 30 mph with 50 mph gusts.
