Trade Wind Weather Taking Over Forecast
A High Surf Advisory is posted for south, north and east shores of the Big Island through 6 p.m. Thursday. Surf, generated by Nora, of 6 to 9 foot faces is expected. Expect strong breaking waves, shore break and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.

Trade wind weather slowly returning to the islands. Clouds and passing showers will again favor windward and mauka areas. Over the weekend there may be a possible increase in clouds and showers across portions of the state as tropical moisture may spread over the area from the southeast.
Today we expect partly sunny skies and isolated showers for windward spots. The Kona side is forecast to start out mostly sunny with clouds building in the afternoon and scattered showers. High temperatures from 82° to 87°. Northeast winds are forecast up to 15 mph.
UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)
Northeast winds are expected in the evening up to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 71° to 76°. Mostly cloudy skies are expected in the evening with scattered showers for windward spots and isolated showers for leeward areas.
