Looking Ahead

Moderate trade winds are forecast to continue through Tuesday with an increase in moisture. Uncertainty is still high when it comes to the forecast track for Hurricane Madeline, however direct impacts, including damaging winds, flooding rain, and high surf, are likely over portions of the state during the Wednesday through Thursday time frame. After a brief return of stable trade wind weather, Hurricane Lester may affect the islands over the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Will keep an eye on it.

Tonight 

East winds around 15 mph. Mostly cloudy skies with windward showers likely and partly cloudy with scattered showers for lee spots. Low temperatures from 73° to 78°.
