High wind watch posted

Kauaians can expect chilly and possibly windy weather for the next few days.

A high wind watch was issued at noon Tuesday for all islands exposed to strong and gusty southwesterly winds. The watch was forecast to remain in effect until midnight tonight.

A high wind watch means that winds in excess of 40 mph are expected but not yet occurring. Residents living in areas exposed to southwest winds are advised to tie down loose objects or move them to sheltered locations and avoid any activities that will expose them to the dangerously strong winds.

A cold front located northwest of Kaua’i on Tuesday and moving in a southeasterly direction was expected to reach Kaua’i today bringing with it chilly temperatures. Temperatures are expected to dip into the mid 60s today and Thursday with higher temperatures expected by the weekend.

For more information and updates, residents are advised to stay tuned to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration radio or local tv or radio stations for updated National Weather Service reports.
