Light and variable winds are expected today up to 15 mph with a mostly sunny morning. 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 for much of the Big Island (see UHSOEST vog model above). High temperatures should fall in the range of 80° to 85°.

Dry and hazy weather can be expected over the next several days as a ridge of high pressure lies across the area. A weak front is expected and will help to continue to block our trade winds through the end of the work week. Light to moderate trade winds are expected later this weekend and on into early next week as an area of high pressure passes by to our north. A slight increase in showers can be expected over windward and mauka areas.
