A light and variable weather pattern is forecast for the next few days with afternoon sea breezes and overnight land breezes taking hold. A disturbance high in the atmosphere will make conditions more unstable over the next few days and could bring an uptick in shower activity through the weekend. A front is then expected to reach the islands later this weekend and stall over the middle of the state.
Cloudy skies are expected with occasional windward showers. The Kona side will start the day off with isolated showers with an increase in showers forecast for the afternoon as cold cover builds. High temperatures from 77° to 82° and feeling warmer due to the elevated heat index. Winds will be variable up to 15 mph.
UV index at 3 (“moderate” exposure level)
East winds are forecast around 15 mph but shifting out of the southwest after midnight. Cloud skies with showers likely in windward spots. Isolated showers are forecast for the Kona side. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
