According to NWS, east winds of 20 to 30 mph with localized gusts to 50 mph are expected for portions of the Big Island, Maui, Lanai, and Kahoolawe.

NWS said winds this strong can knock down tree branches, blow away tents and unsecured objects, and make it difficult to drive, especially for high-profile vehicles.

High-pressure north of the state will keep breezy to locally windy conditions in place through the 4th of July Holiday weekend.

Fairly typical trade wind weather will prevail through Saturday, with showers favoring windward and mauka areas, with the eastern islands seeing more showers than the western end of the state.

An upper-level trough will pass over the islands Saturday night through Sunday night, bringing an uptick in showers to windward and mauka areas, and sending a few showers into leeward communities.
