The trade winds are expected to pick up and become breezy to gusty on Thursday through the weekend. A more stable air mass is also expected to settle over the islands by this weekend. This will limit afternoon showers over leeward slopes. The breezy trades will carry some of these showers over to leeward spots. The remnants of a front could bring an increase in trade showers late in the weekend.
Partly cloudy with scattered showers for windward and mauka areas. Hazy skies for the Kona side. Sunny in the morning with isolated showers as cloud cover builds in the afternoon. High temperatures from 82° to 87°. Winds will be east from 15 to 25 mph.
UV index at 9 (“very high” exposure level)
Winds will be east around 15 to 25 mph. Mostly cloudy with windward showers likely. Kona side should be clearing as the night goes on. Low temperatures from 70° to 75°.
