Wind advisory for portions of Big Island canceled
Update: The National Weather Service in Honolulu has canceled a wind advisory for portions of the Big Island that was in effect for much of June 25, reporting winds have diminished below advisory thresholds.
Original story: The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for portions of the Big Island from 10 a.m. on Saturday to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
High pressure north of Hawaiʻi will keep windy trades blowing through the weekend.
The forecast is for east winds of 20 to 30 mph, with localized gusts up to 50 mph.
Winds this strong can knock down tree branches, blow around tents and other unsecured objects, and make it difficult to drive, especially for high profile vehicles.
Watch out for falling tree branches when walking or driving. Makesure tents and awnings are secure or take them down. Be prepared for power outages.
