“Highs will be low 80’s to low 90s. Winds out of the northeast at 10 to 25 miles per hour. Tradewind showers windward and mauka, occassionally passing to leeward.”

With few exceptions, that is the typical forecast for Mau’i. Lets face it, that is also the typical forecast for the entire State. Those of us who live here don’t even think about our weather until it makes a drastic change. But for the visitors to our tropical paradise, weather is very important. Not here but back home.

Oceanic Cable is missing a major profit point. Most of our guests are surprised that our cable system does not carry The Weather Channel. This cable channel is one of the most viewed on the mainland but is not carried on our cable system.

People visiting here want to know what is happening back home. If OC would carry this channel as part of the basic cable service, their ad revenue would dramatically increase. I know that OC carries NBC Weather Plus as part of the digital service package but few hotels have this service. All of the major hotels do carry the basic cable service, and this is where this channel needs to be.

This would also be a great aid for Hawai’i residents needing to travel, whether going to the mainland or Asia. People want to know what the weather is going to be at their destination.

I wonder if anyone from OC reads this blog?
