We expect variable winds up to 15 mph. That means a local land and sea breeze weather pattern is likely to set up. The Kona side can expect mostly sunny skies in the morning and mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon with the possibility of isolated showers. Windward and southeast Big Island are forecasted to get partly cloudy skies with scattered showers. High temperatures should fall in the range of 80° to 85°.

Looking Ahead 

Clouds and a few showers associated with a weak front will linger over the Big Island Friday. For the weekend, a brief return of light trade winds will focus passing showers over windward slopes, with afternoon sea breezes and clouds but drier conditions over leeward areas. Winds will turn south Monday and then west through midweek and unsettled weather is expected starting Monday night and extending through the coming week.
