A rather breezy trade wind weather pattern can be expected over the next few days. Moisture associated with a weakening frontal boundary will cause an increase in showers through Wednesday especially for windward and mauka areas. The trade winds will be sufficiently strong to blow some showers over to leeward areas at times. Drier weather and lighter trade winds are expected later in the week and on into the weekend.
Today we expect mostly cloudy skies. Showers are likely for windward spots with partly cloudy skies and isolated showers for the Kona side. Winds are out of the northeast from 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 40mph. High temperatures from 78° to 83°.
UV index at 10 (“very high” exposure level)
Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph tonight with higher gusts. Low temperatures from 65° to 70° with mostly cloudy skies and showers likely for windward areas.
