A cold front will approach the state from the northwest today
and this evening, then move down the island chain late tonight
and Saturday, while a strong high pressure system passes north of
the islands through the weekend. This combination will bring
increasing winds to western and central parts of the state late
tonight, and very windy conditions to all islands Saturday through
Sunday. The strongest northeast to east winds will be over higher
terrain, through mountain gaps, and downslope of the mountains.

Loose outdoor objects may become airborne under these strong
winds. Prepare now by securing these objects before winds
increase. The strong cross winds may bring hazardous driving
conditions, especially for high profile vehicles.

If you have outdoor plans for the weekend, be prepared for very
windy conditions. If your plans involve marine activities, you may
want to consider postponing them.

Stay tuned for updates from the National Weather Service or your
favorite media outlet.
