Moderate to breezy trade winds will continue through Wednesday. Clouds and showers should favor mainly windward and mauka areas, with an increase in shower activity expected Tuesday night and Wednesday as moisture from the remnants of an old front moves through. A late season front is expected to approach Thursday, causing our winds to weaken and veer to the southeast. The front may stall near Kauai late this week, then dissipate with trade winds returning during the weekend.
We expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers during the day. The Kona side will be mostly sunny with isolated showers in the afternoon as clouds build. Hazy areas are expected. Northeast winds are forecast from 10 to 25 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures from 80° to 85°.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Northeast winds are expected around 10 – 20 mph. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast with windward showers likely. For the Kona side mostly cloudy to start with clearing skies as the night goes on. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
