Red flag warning canceled for all islands

UPDATE: 4:15 p.m.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has canceled the Red Flag Warning for Maui County and the island of Hawaii.

The warning was canceled around 3:45 p.m., more than two hours before the originally scheduled expiration date.

The weather service also canceled the wind advisory for all islands.


The National Weather Service has canceled the Red Flag Warning for Oahu, but it remains in place for downwind areas of Maui County and Hawaii Island until 6 p.m. today.

“Conditions have improved on Kauai, Niihau and Oahu due to increased humidity from a front moving over the western end of the state, so the warning has been canceled there” , forecasters said in a bulletin this morning.

The Red Flag Warning remains in effect until this afternoon for the leeward areas of Molokai, Maui, Lanai and the Big Island.

The Hawaii Department of Education closed all four Lahaina public schools today as a precaution.

Warnings are issued when a combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and dry fuels can combine to increase the risk of wildfires.

A wind advisory remains in effect for parts of all islands until 6 p.m. Monday, according to the weather service.

“A strong anticyclone to the north of the islands will bring windy trade winds this evening. Winds are expected to increase this afternoon over the western half of the state as an area of ​​stronger winds appears behind a dissipating front,” according to the advisory.

Today’s forecast calls for east winds of 20 to 30 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph and relative humidity of 40 percent.

“Such strong winds can bring down tree branches, blow away tents and unsecured items, and make driving difficult, especially for large vehicles, the advisory states.

The weather service also forecasts increased showers on Kauai and Oahu through tonight, while Maui County and the Big Island remain dry. “A more typical trade wind pattern, moderate to locally windy, will take over Wednesday and Thursday, then strengthen to become breezy by the end of the week,” forecasters said.
