Maui Weather Report - Still Sunny
I had to laugh at my nephew yesterday when he gave the Maui weather report as - "mostly perfect with a slight chance of imperfection." He's out here visiting for his gazillionth time, and was commenting to our other visitors who are here for their first time. And you know, the funny thing is, he's right!
The weather on Maui can be boring at times.... mostly sunny with a chance of scattered showers in the mauka areas. North-east tradewinds in the 10-15 mile per hour range, highs in the low to mid 80's .... day after day after day! Yikes! It's always a good day to go to the beach... either north shore or south shore, or west side.
All year long the conditions are ideal for surfing and windsurfing, with small to medium sized waves rolling in somewhere on the island. In the winter months we get the really big surf, especially on the north shore.
Maui Weather Today, with Glenn James is a good website with up to date Maui forecasts and current conditions.
Worried about tsunamis? Have no fear - the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center is here, and you can sign up for messages and email alerts. Here on Maui we have an "early warning system" of coastal sirens in tsunami prone areas. The last tsunami to cause any widespread damage on Maui was in 1964.
Go to the National Weather Service website for more info about Tropical Hurricanes.
