Moderate trade winds will persist through Saturday. The stable trade wind flow will focus clouds and showers over windward slopes, while random pockets of moisture periodically spread light showers to leeward areas of the smaller islands. The Kona slopes of the Big Island will experience a few afternoon showers.
We expect partly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers in the morning. The Kona side will be mostly sunny with isolated showers in the afternoon as clouds build. Hazy areas are expected. East winds are forecast from 15 to 25 mph. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
