A slow increase in trade winds is forecasted over the next couple days. A band of moisture associated with a weak disturbance is expected to move across the state into Wednesday, increasing showers for windward and mauka areas mainly. Winds will then weaken and shift southeasterly this weekend making daily afternoon sea breezes and overnight land breezes the weather pattern during that time. Some volcanic haze is possible during that time as well.
We expect east winds around 10 to 15 mph. Mostly cloudy skies in windward spots with scattered showers. Leeward spots should be mostly sunny in the morning with mostly cloudy skies in the afternoon and scattered showers. Haze in some spots.Temperatures up to 82° to 87°.
UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)
East winds around 10 to 15 mph. Showers likely in windward spots with scattered showers to start and clearing skies for the Kona side as the night goes on. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
