Maui County Weekend Weather Forecast
By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: [email protected]
The High Surf Advisory has been extended for the east facing shores of Maui and Molokaʻi until 6 p.m. Sunday. Surf along east facing shores could reach heights of 6 to 8 feet. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and dangerous currents that make getting into the water hazardous and swimming difficult.
A Small Craft Advisory is posted for all Maui County windward waters and the Kaiwi channel until 6 p.m. Saturday. The advisory will last until Sunday at 6 p.m. for the ʻAlenuihāhā and Pailolo channels. Winds of 20 to 30 knots are expected and rough seas from 10 to 15 feet. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

On Sunday we expect the same weather pattern and temperatures but winds will be out of the east from 15 to 20 mph.
High pressure is churning out our trade winds and they are pretty strong. We expect to have these breezy trades through the holiday weekend. Lingering moisture will continue to bring scattered showers to windward areas. Leeward spots should be dry. Trade wind speeds are forecasted to drop slightly early next week.
