The National Weather Service in Honolulu predicts that a strong high pressure system will pass north of the islands this weekend bringing very windy conditions to all islands Saturday and Sunday.

Areas likely to be affected on the Big Island include: the north, east Kohala, the Big Island interior and summits.

The strong northeast to east winds will be especially gusty over higher terrain through mountain gaps and
downslope of the mountains. These winds can make loose outdoor objects become airborne and result in hazardous driving conditions due to strong cross winds.

If you have outdoor plans for the weekend be prepared for very windy conditions.
