Trade winds are back, but will be short lived

Weather Blog

The trade winds have returned across the islands, but they wont be sticking around for long.

Expect trades to weaken yet again starting Monday night. 

By Tuesday, we can begin to experience another round of light and variable winds.

These variable winds will bring in hot and humid conditions across the islands as a result to Hurricane Walaka as it passes far west of the islands.

Walaka does not pose any threat to the islands, however we can see associated moisture possibly reach the west end of the state starting Friday into the weekend.  

This could also bring possible thunderstorms.

We will see a decrease in trade wind moisture starting tonight into Monday.  

Starting Tuesday, we can expect to see afternoon showers due to the sea breezes that warm the inland areas up during the middle of the day.

Especially the Kona slopes of Hawai’i island can see afternoon showers.

During the late night and early time periods, we can expect to see clearer skies and drier conditions.
