Our weather is expected to be generally dry for the next few days, but a disturbance near the Big Island of Hawaii is forecast to linger through the weekend. This trough produced enough instability for some heavy showers over the Kona slopes last night so afternoon showers on the Big Island may remain active the next few days. Early next week, a more stable atmosphere is forecast over the islands bringing breezy trade winds. A band of showers along the remnants of an old front if expected to move over the islands Monday night and bring an increase in windward showers through mid-week.
Partly sunny with scattered windward showers. For the Kona side, sunny to start with building clouds and scattered afternoon showers. High temperatures from 82° to 87°. Winds will be northeast around 15 mph.
UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)
Winds will be northeast around 15 mph. Mostly cloudy with scattered windward showers. Kona side should be mostly cloudy to start with clearing as the night goes on. Low temperatures from 72° to 77°.
