ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Today we expect hazy skies due to the light and variable winds forecasted up 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 80° to 85°.

Sunrise: 7:05 a.m.

Sunset: 6:05 p.m.

Tonight

Mostly clear skies and areas of haze. Leeward spots may be cloudy to start but are expected to clear as the land breeze takes hold. A bit cooler tonight as we expect less cloud cover. Without the clouds to trap the heat, radiational cooling will take place and low temperatures from 58° to 65° degrees are expected at lower elevations. At higher elevations the low temperature will be colder. Light and variable winds up to 15 mph are forecasted.

Moonrise: 1:28 a.m.

Moonset: 1:11 p.m.

Next New Moon: Jan. 20 at 3:14 a.m.

Next Full Moon: 1:09 p.m. on Feb. 3

 

Looking Ahead

Dry and hazy weather can be expected over the next several days as a ridge of high pressure lies across the area. A weak front is expected and will help to continue to block our trade winds through the end of the work week. Light to moderate trade winds are expected later this weekend and on into early next week as an area of high pressure passes by to our north. A slight increase in showers can be expected over windward and mauka areas.
