Looking Ahead
Winds are expected to remain light over the next couple of days. Hot, humid, hazy conditions are forecast. Sea breezes will bring afternoon clouds which may produce locally heavy rainfall each afternoon and early evening. A few thunderstorms are possible for the Big Island to Oahu Monday afternoon. Trade wind weather will return by mid week as a front crosses the state Tuesday and Wednesday.

At last check, Nora was moving west northwest at 14 mph. The current forecast track for Nora re-curves it towards the north and northeast before reaching Hawaii, but it is still important to watch for updates in case this changes in the coming days.
 
Today
Today we expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward and mauka spots. The Kona side is forecast to start out mostly sunny with clouds building in the afternoon and scattered showers. Locally heavy rainfall and thunderstorms are possible. High temperatures from 85° to 90°. Variable winds are forecast up to 10 mph.
 
UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)
 
Tonight
Variable winds are expected in the evening up to 10 mph. Low temperatures from 73° to 78°. Mostly cloudy skies are expected in the evening with scattered showers until the land breeze takes hold and clears the clouds overnight.
