Light and variable winds are expected today up to 15 mph with partly sunny skies and just isolated showers. As the land heats up, sea breezes are expected to develop which will lead to afternoon cloud cover and possible isolated showers. Hazy skies are expected in the afternoon for parts of the Big Island (see UHSOEST vog model above). High temperatures should fall in the range of 79° to 84°.

Looking Ahead 

Light southeast flow is expected for the weekend resulting in land and sea breezes over the islands and periods of vog and haze. We don’t expect a lot of moisture in the coming days. A weakening front in our vicinity will cut off our trade winds for the early part of next week but isn’t expected to reach the islands. Another front is expected to to approach the Aloha State after that so light and variable winds with land and sea breeze conditions are expected through end of the week as well.
