Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Windy trade wind weather is forecast to stay in place through most of the work week. On Friday winds are expected to slowly weaken, this will continue into the weekend. Clouds and showers will favor windward and mauka spots with some reaching leeward areas from time to time blowing in on our strong winds.

 

Today 

We expect northeast to east winds around 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 30 – 50 mph. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecast with passing windward showers and isolated leeward showers in the afternoon. Temperatures up to 83° to 88°.

UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)

 

Tonight 

Partly to mostly cloudy skies with passing windward showers and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 67° to 72°. Winds are expected to be out of the northeast to east around 15 to 25 mph with 30-50 mph gusts.
