Current weather in Maui?

Heading to Maui in a couple of days. Staying in Kanaapali for 4 days, then Wailea for another 4.

Can a local please tell me what the weather is like right now in either orboth of those areas? Weather channel online indicates showers with winds but webcams I have seen show bright and sunny.

Your help is appreciated!

My friend in Wailea said he has sun outside, but it is very windy, same as I have on Oahu. Not very good for sitting on sand, but nice and cool for wandering around!

We have frequent little showers, but the sun will normally come out in between or during the rain.

From Maui Jon's website:

www.mauihawaii.org

Go to his site for lots of Maui info.

WEATHER:

Weather in the resort areas of Maui (Wailea and Kaanapali) is warm all year round. Winter high around 81; low around 64; ocean water 75. Summer high about 87, low about 69, ocean water 79. The most rain is in December and January, while the least rain is in June through September. When it rains in the resort areas of Maui, it sometimes only lasts 15 minutes, though it can rain all day in the winter. However, the weather can be completely different on another section of the same island: each island has a windward side that gets most of the rain. On the chance that you might get a rainy day, you could bring a small umbrella or light raincoat. Call 877?5111 for Maui weather. (Call 242-0212 for the time.) If it is raining in your hotel area on Kaanapali Beach and you want to find a sunny beach, try going to Kamaole Sands III Beach in the south part of Kihei, where it rains much less. If it is raining even in Kihei and Wailea, go further south, past the Maui Prince Hotel, to Big Beach (Makena Beach Park), where it practically never rains. (Notice the cactuses beside the road.)



See the FAQ page on this (Jon?s) web site, for a detailed chart of the high, low, water temperature, and inches of rain, for each month of the year. www.mauihawaii.org/faqs.htm



At 7:45 AM Monday-Friday, watch the detailed Maui weather forecast on TV, on Channel 12 on East Maui, or channel 55 on West Maui.

The sun is intense here at about 20?degree latitude (similar to the latitude of Mexico City), so use at least a 15?rated sunscreen on all exposed skin every day, even if you're just going shopping or exploring.
