    Looking Ahead

    While a front keeps the smaller islands quite wet through the weekend, the Big Island looks to remain outside of the main band of clouds and only isolated showers are expected through Friday until trade winds bring limited scattered showers to windward areas Friday night. Humid conditions are expected to continue through the weekend with drier trade wind weather expected early next week.




    We expect northeast winds today from 10 to 20 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 82° to 87°. Mostly sunny skies this morning with a slight chance of windward showers. Partly sunny with isolated afternoon showers for the Kona side.

    UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)



    Northeast winds are forecast around 10 to 20 mph. Partly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and clearing skies for the Kona side. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
