    Looking Ahead

    Our breezy, gusty winds are forecast to continue through the end of the week with a downward trend expected with wind speeds from Friday into the weekend. Windward and mauka areas will get clouds and showers with some leeward spots getting showers from time to time. A disturbance high in the atmosphere could enhance windward showers today and cause flare ups for the Kona side of the Big Island.

    We have northeast winds today around 15 to 30 mph, gusting to 40 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 77° to 82°. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with showers likely in windward spots. Sunny morning for the Kona side with showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. The thunderstorms could produce gusty winds and small hail.

    UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)

    Tonight 

    Northeast winds are forecast from 15 to 25 mph. Mostly cloudy skies are expected with showers likely for windward spots. Clear skies for leeward areas. Low temperatures from 63° to 68°.
