Another round of light and variable winds starting Tuesday

Weather Blog

The trade winds have returned across the islands, however some may not be feeling it.

These trades will linger around on Monday, but will be replaced by light and variable winds by Tuesday.  

This will create hot and humid conditions yet again, and this time it is expected to linger into the next weekend.

A drier air mass has arrived, creating less windward and mauka showers.  

With the next round of light and variable winds, we can expect to see afternoon showers for leeward and inland areas, especially for the Kona slopes of Hawai’i island.

During the late night and early morning hours, drier conditions prevail with clearer skies.

Hurricane Walaka is now a category 2 system and will be veering northwest on Monday before turning northward on Tuesday. 

It is expected to pass near Johnston Atoll as a category 4 major hurricane on Tuesday, and pass west of Hawai’i on Wednesday.

Hawai’i does not expect any significant impacts other than hot and humid conditions, followed by possible rain associated with the system starting Friday into the weekend.

This moisture could reach Ni’ihau and Kaua’i, while the rest of the islands could see an uptick in trade moisture depending when the trades return.
