Looking Ahead

A strong high pressure ridge far to the north of the Hawaiian Islands will produce breezy winds over the local area ahead of Hurricane Lane. Deep tropical moisture will move up from the south with Lane, spreading shower bands and possible thunderstorms over the Big Island later this morning and reaching Maui by this afternoon and evening. These shower bands will continue to spread northward across the rest of the state as Lane moves northwestward. Hurricane Lane will bring damaging winds, dangerous surf, and intense flooding rains to areas within the state of Hawaii through Saturday.
