Moderate trade winds will rebuild through Tuesday, focusing low clouds and showers mainly across windward and mauka areas. The winds will weaken over the smaller islands starting Wednesday, leading to a local afternoon sea breeze and nighttime land breeze weather pattern with isolated showers favoring the afternoon hours. A cold front will sweep down the island chain on Saturday and Saturday night, with strong and gusty northerly winds bringing cooler and drier air into the state.
Today we expect partly sunny skies with isolated showers in the afternoon for the Kona side. Windward and mauka areas will get scattered showers. Winds are out of the east up to 15 mph. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
UV index at 8 (“very high” exposure level)
