Severe weather advisory issued by National Weather Service

The National Weather Service has issued a severe weather forecast for the state of Hawaii.

A cold front will move down the Hawaiian Islands starting tonight through Thanksgiving Day. Brief showers followed by a period of very windy conditions and high surf from the northeast is expected.


Winds this strong can cause tree damage, power outages, and make driving difficult.

Due to the high winds and surf, the following advisories are issued:

• Consider moving any planned outdoor Thanksgiving Day events indoors.

• Consider postponing hanging any outdoor holiday decorations and securing all outdoor items which may become damaged or airborne.

• Those with shoreline property or boats from Upolu Point in North Kohala south through Hamakua and Hilo to Cape Kumukahi in Puna, please take this time to secure your property from high surf.
