ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Today we expect light and variable winds from 5 to 15 mph. Weaker winds mean a land and sea breeze pattern is likely to set up. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Maui County. As the land heats up, sea breezes are expected to develop which may lead to afternoon cloud cover and possible isolated light showers. High temperatures are expected to fall in the range of 79° to 84°.

Sunrise: 7:05 a.m.

Sunset: 6:02 p.m.

Looking Ahead

Light southeast flow is expected for the weekend resulting in land and sea breezes over the islands and periods of vog and haze. We don’t expect a lot of moisture in the coming days. A weakening front in our vicinity will cut off our trade winds for the early part of next week but isn’t expected to reach the islands. Another front is expected to to approach the Aloha State after that so light and variable winds with land and sea breeze conditions are expected through end of the week as well.
