Sunday

Windward spots are expected to be mostly cloudy with showers likely. The Kona side is forecasted to get partly to mostly cloudy skies with mainly scattered afternoon showers. Winds are forecasted out of the east around 15 mph. High temperatures from 78° to 83° and low temperatures from 67° to 73°.

 

Looking Ahead 

A weak front will drift slowly east through Saturday, disrupting the trade wind flow and acting as a focus for enhanced showers across the central and eastern parts of the state. An upper level trough lingering over the state will maintain a chance of locally heavy showers near the front, mainly during the afternoon hours as sea breezes drive convection. Drier weather will prevail across the western part of the state. Trade winds will rebuild on Sunday and continue into next week, with wet conditions developing across windward and mauka areas.
