A disturbance high in the atmosphere has created instability that led to snowfall on our Big Island summits yesterday. This feature will remain just south of the islands through Friday. Breezy trade winds will give way to increasingly moist southerly flow over the state. The combination of these two features will cause pockets of heavy rain and even a few thunderstorms over and near the state for the next few days. The disturbance is forecast to move away from the islands on Monday with the airmass drying out somewhat at that time.
Windy conditions are expected today with mostly cloudy skies and likely showers for windward spots. Scattered showers are forecast for leeward spots. Locally heavy rainfall is possible with a slight chance of thunderstorms. High temperatures from 79° to 84°. Northeast winds 15 to 20 mph, with higher gusts.
UV index at 6 (“high” exposure level)
East to southeast winds 10 to 20 mph. Mostly cloudy with scattered showers. Low temperatures from 67° to 72°.
