A disturbance is forecast to pass over the islands this weekend. This will weaken the trades and increase showers for some areas. That weather feature is expected to weaken and move away early next week and our weather will return back to normal as that happens. Windy conditions are expected on Tuesday.

We expect northeast winds around 5 to 15 mph with afternoon sea breezes. High temperatures are forecast from 82° to 87° but feeling warmer where the winds are light. Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward spots in the morning. Clouds and showers shift to leeward spots for the afternoon with mostly cloudy skies there and scattered showers. Sunday, partly cloudy with scattered windward showers and afternoon clouds with scattered showers for the Kona side.
