The Kona side can expect mostly sunny skies in the morning and mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon with the possibility of isolated showers.

The weather pattern should be similar to Saturday’s forecast.

 

Looking Ahead 

Trade winds are expected to return as a surface ridge builds north of the islands. The trades will continue into early next week, with low clouds and showers mainly over windward and mauka areas. Starting Tuesday, we expect an extended period of gusty westerly winds and wet weather to the state. These unsettled weather conditions may continue through the end of next week.
