Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A rather breezy trade wind weather pattern can be expected over the next few days. Moisture associated with a weakening frontal boundary will cause an increase in showers through Wednesday especially for windward and mauka areas. The trade winds will be sufficiently strong to blow some showers over to leeward areas at times. Drier weather and lighter trade winds are expected later in the week and on into the weekend.

 

Today

As a weak front brings increased moisture, today we expect mostly cloudy skies with occasional windward and mauka showers and scattered showers in leeward areas. Winds are out of the northeast from 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. High temperatures from 77° to 83°.

UV index at 10 (“very high” exposure level)

 

Tonight 

Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. Low temperatures from 67° to 72°. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast with scattered showers.
