Breezy trade winds are forecast to gradually weaken Friday and become light and variable by Saturday. Clouds and passing showers are expected to favor windward coasts and slopes. A strong low is expected to pass several hundred miles north of the islands on Sunday, bringing the potential for gusty west winds and increased showers as a front moves down the island chain. Light north winds are expected to bring cooler and drier weather through the first half of next week.
Today we expect partly cloudy skies. Scattered showers are expected for windward spots. Sunny skies for the Kona side with clouds building and isolated showers in the afternoon. Northeast winds are forecast around 15 mph. High temperatures from 78° to 83°.
UV index at 7 (“very high” exposure level)
Variable winds are expected up to 15 mph tonight. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° with mostly clear skies and isolated windward showers.
