Trade winds are forecast to gradually decrease over the next couple of days, with afternoon sea breezes becoming widespread over leeward areas by Wednesday. Moderate showers will continue to favor windward slopes into Tuesday with chances for heavier showers will increase on Wednesday, especially over interior sections. A more stable, hybrid trade wind and weak afternoon convective pattern will prevail on Thursday and Friday, followed by light and variable winds and a land and sea breeze pattern over most islands this weekend.
We expect sunny skies in the morning with mostly cloudy skies and isolated showers in the afternoon for the Kona side. Partly cloudy skies are expected for the Hilo side with scattered showers. Winds are out of the east around 15 mph. High temperatures from 81° to 86°.
