…HIGH WIND WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM FRIDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON…

HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING NORTH OF THE ISLANDS WILL PRODUCE VERY STRONG TRADE WINDS STARTING FRIDAY EVENING. EXPECT THESE WINDS TO BE STRONGEST WHERE THE WIND BLOWS DOWNSLOPE ALONG THE SOUTHWESTERN…OR LEEWARD…SIDES OF MOST ISLANDS. ALSO EXPECT STRONG WINDS WHERE LOCAL ACCELERATION OCCURS THROUGH VALLEYS… AROUND HEADLANDS…AND OVER MOUNTAIN RIDGES.

A HIGH WIND WATCH MEANS THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR A HAZARDOUS HIGH WIND EVENT. SUSTAINED WINDS OF AT LEAST 40 MPH…OR GUSTS OF 58 MPH OR STRONGER…MAY OCCUR. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
