Isles see wet, windy Thanksgiving weather

  • NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

    An area of broken high clouds to the west and southwest of the islands can be seen in this composite satellite from this morning.

Today would be a good day to stay indoors with cloudy, windy and wet weather expected for most areas.

A wind advisory for the state is extended until 6 p.m. today because of east winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts near 50 mph.

“Tradewinds will be strong and gusty into the holiday weekend,” forecasters said.

The strong winds are blowing rain clouds over the islands. Most of the showers are over windward and mauka areas, but some rain is making it to leeward sections.

The forecast for Honolulu and south shores of Oahu calls for a 50 percent chance of rain this afternoon, though steadily descreasing through tonight.

Forecasters expect another bout of above-average tradewind showers Saturday night into Sunday.

High clouds moving over the state from the west should also make for cloudy to partly sunny conditions today.

Expect cool and windy conditions at night with lows dipping into the high 60s.

A high surf advisory is also in effect for east shores until 6 p.m. Saturday. Surf of 7 to 11 feet, generated by the strong east winds, are creating strong, breaking waves, shore break and strong currents, making swimming difficult and dangerous.
