Trade wind weather is forecast into the weekend with showers for our usual windward and mauka spots. Enhanced trade showers are forecast through Wednesday. Hurricane Fernanda continues to move northwest and is forecast to weaken over the next couple of days. It’s still too soon to know what affect Fernanda will have on island weather early next week. On the current path, we could either see tropical moisture move over the state or if the system passes far north, it could cut off our trade winds and bring muggy weather.
We expect northeast winds around 15 to 20 mph. High temperatures are forecast from 84° to 89°. Mostly cloudy skies with numerous showers for the Hilo side in the morning and scattered afternoon showers. Partly sunny skies in the morning for Kona with afternoon scattered showers.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Northeast winds are forecast around 15 to 20 mph. Mostly cloudy skies with numerous windward showers, clearing skies for leeward spots. Low temperatures from 73° to 78°.
