HiP weekly Weather Forecast-  Tuesday Nov 21 to Monday Nov 28th 2023

Weather Conditions for Oahu-

This week winds will be shifty with lots of passing showers and plenty patches of sunshine. Thursday – Saturday may be mostly cloudy and Sunday and Monday will be over cast. But no worry beef curry this is typical autumn weather patterns where the forecast may not include the relentless sunshine that hawaii enjoys. If rain in the forecast causes concern remember as I always say… No Rain no Rainbows and we are called the rainbow state for a reason 

Winds- Winds will be decreasing through the week. Tuesday NE – SW at 10-15 mph and by thanksgiving day winds will be blowing east west at 5-10mph, Friday SE to NW 0-5 then almost like a tennis volley the winds come from the opposite direction NW to SEthen Sunday from the N at 15-20 and back to NE tradwinds next Monday.  So its fair to say these winds will be rocking around the clock or compass per se… this week.

Temperatures average-  

Highs will be around at 83- 85F (27C) with the lowest high temp on Sunday with the cool winds coming in from the north.

Lows will be around 72-70F (21C) and a chilly 69 early Monday morning
