Today will be another hot and humid day. We expect high temperatures from 83° to 88°. Trade winds are forecasted to blow from 15 to 25 mph in exposed areas. Partly to mostly cloudy skies are in the forecast for windward and mauka areas with showers likely in the morning. Some of these showers could spread leeward from time to time, mainly in the morning.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Trade winds are expected tonight from 15 to 20 mph. Mostly cloudy skies are forecasted with showers likely in windward spots. Some showers could spread leeward from time to time. Low temperatures from 73° to 78° are expected. Click here for more information on the Perseid Meteor Shower.
A very moist air mass left over from Hilda will continue to encourage unsettled weather across most of the state, and especially the Big Island, into the weekend. The areas affected should shrink with time. Trade winds will persist through this time. By early next week, a trough will bring an even moister air mass, and light winds.
