Hot and humid conditions will unfortunately stick around as weak trade winds gradually fill back in. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas and some clouds and showers are still possible over leeward areas Saturday afternoon. Trade winds are expected to pick up during the weekend, though humid conditions will continue. Hurricane Ignacio will approach the state late in the weekend and is expected to affect island weather next week. The cone of uncertainty, which is the potential track given historic track error, includes the entire state. If Ignacio shifts to the right, we could see light winds, more humid conditions, and localized heavy rain. On a more leftward track closer to the islands, we could see stronger/damaging winds and more widespread heavy rain/flooding.
Today we expect mostly cloudy skies for windward and mauka areas with scattered showers. Leeward spots are expected to be mostly clear in the morning with mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon and scattered showers. High temperatures from 88° to 93°. Light east winds from 5 to 15 mph are forecasted with afternoon sea breezes.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
