Wind Advisory

The National Weather Service has extended a wind advisory for central and west Maui, Lānaʻi and Kahoolawe, in effect until 6 p.m. Sunday.

A high wind warning that was issued for these areas has now been canceled.

“High pressure far north of the islands will support strong trade winds through Sunday. Expect northeast winds of 20 to 30 mph with localized gusts over 50 mph,” an announcement from the county read.

“Winds this strong could bring down tree branches and cause localized power outages. Motorists, especially those in high profile vehicles, are urged to drive with caution.”

Pre-recorded advisories and notifications are available 24-hours a day on the Maui County Automated Information System (AIS) by calling 986-1200.
