A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for Maui County windward waters, the Kaiwi Channel and the  ʻAlenuihāhā Channel through 6:00 a.m. Saturday. Inexperienced mariners should avoid navigating in these conditions.

Tonight

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecasted with scattered windward showers and isolated leeward showers. Northeast winds around 15 mph. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° degrees expected.

Next Full Moon: 8:06 a.m. on Mar. 5

 

Sunday

We expect just isolated showers for lee spots today. Windward and mauka areas are forecasted to be cloudy and get scattered showers. Variable winds are expected up to 15 mph. High temperatures are expected from 76° to 81° and low temperatures from 66° to 71°.

 

Looking Ahead

Remnant moisture from the old front will be drawn back northwest across the state Sunday through Monday as another front stalls several hundred miles northwest of Kauai. Showers will be most likely over windward areas, but at least isolated showers could affect leeward areas as well. Drier trade wind weather is expected during the middle of next week. A front slowly approaching from the northwest and tropical moisture approaching from the southeast may bring unsettled weather to the state by late next week.
