Forecast: More passing showers, breezy trades

We're expecting an increase in passing windward and mauka showers for Sunday, with some of those showers carried leeward by breezy trade winds. It should dry out a bit for Monday, but the breezy trades are expected to remain. Highs will still hit the upper 80s to near 90.

We are tracking tropical cyclones Madeline and Lester to the east of the islands. It's far too early to say exactly what effects they could have on our island weather, but it's also a good reminder to be prepared if you haven't already done so for hurricane season. That said, the current forecast track for Madeline takes it close to the islands Wednesday and Thursday. Again, there's a lot of uncertainty since the computer forecast models aren't in close agreement. We'll keep you posted.

Small Craft Advisory is up for the Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels, Maalaea Bay, and coastal waters south and west of the Big Island. Be on the alert for box jellyfish along south shores, where waves will decline to 1-3 feet. Some choppy 2-4 foot surf is forecast for east shores, with good fishing and diving conditions for north and west shores.
