Strong and gusty trade winds will continue today throughout Hawaii, prompting the National Weather Service to extend a wind advisory until 6 p.m. today.

East winds up to 30 mph, with gusts reaching 50 mph, can be expected and will be especially gusty over ridge tops and in some valleys, according to the weather service.

An advisory means that winds will be strong enough to make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles, according to the weather service. Also, falling tree branches and local power outages are possible, officials said.

Forecasters say the breezy trade winds are expected through Saturday night and will diminish a bit Sunday. The trade winds will become strong again by the middle of next week and showers may also increase, they said.
