Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph. Partly cloudy skies are expected with isolated leeward showers and scattered windward showers. Low temperatures from 72° to 77° are expected.
A high to the northeast and a series of weak tropical disturbances to the south will keep locally breezy trade winds blowing through early next week. The trades will bring some showers to windward areas, mostly during nights and mornings. Leeward areas will remain mostly dry except for afternoon showers over the Kona slopes. A tropical disturbance may pass northeast of the area by the middle of next week, bringing muggy weather.
Tropical Storm Guillermo Update
The forecast is uncertain after the coming weekend. A tropical disturbance about 2150 miles east southeast of Hilo is expected to move into the central Pacific over the weekend. The weather over the main Hawaiian islands next week will depend on the progress of this tropical system. Weather models currently show the system passing northeast of the Hawaiian islands through the middle of next week. That would likely bring light winds and muggy weather to the islands but it’s still too soon to know exactly what the disturbance will do. The National Hurricane Center in Miami will be issuing forecasts on the system for the next few days. If the system does move into the central Pacific, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu will take over the forecasts at that time.
