Breezy trade winds are expected through Friday. The trades will ease to moderate levels over the weekend and periods of showery weather are forecast during that time. A disturbance high in the atmosphere is expected to pass by the state and enhance those showers. Breezy conditions along with drier and more stable conditions will then return Monday through the middle of next week.
We expect northeast winds around 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures are forecast from 81° to 86°. Mostly cloudy skies with windward showers likely for the Hilo side in the morning and scattered afternoon showers. Kona side may get some scattered afternoon showers as clouds build.
