As this pattern settles in, we can expect showers to affect primarily the windward and mountain areas, .especially nights and mornings. The leeward Big Island will see afternoon clouds and upslope showers with clearing overnight.

Breezy and gusty trades will prevail through the next several days as the islands remain between high pressure to the north and two tropical systems to the south. Increasing tropical moisture from the south and a wetter weather pattern will affect the islands during the rest of the weekend with best chances of rain over the eastern half of the aloha state. There is also a slight chance of thunderstorms for the Big Island from later today through Sunday. The western half of the island chain should remain under a trade wind regime with a little more showers tracking through.

A moist and unstable air mass will maintain the Risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms through today across the western half of the island chain. Trade winds will gradually spread west from the Big Island to Kauai through Sunday night with the main focus of the showers returning to the windward and mountain areas. Unsettled weather may return for next weekend.

Its been a long wait, but: The warm and humid conditions continue as light and variable winds are expected to prevail through the weekend. Locally heavy showers and a few thunderstorms are expected today and Saturday as moisture associated with post tropical cyclone Jimena, along with an upper level trough just to the northwest of Kauai will combine to bring unsettled weather. The heaviest rain will focus across the western half of the island chain. A return to a more typical trade wind weather pattern should begin early next week

It was actually windy enough for kiteboarding yesterday, x fingers for today! A band of moist and unstable air trailing south from the remnant of hurricane Ignacio will support spotty heavy showers and thunderstorms today. Drier weather will spread over the islands as the band of moisture moves away. Sea breezes will produce clouds and showers from the late mornings through the evenings with clearing skies during the late nights and early mornings. The weather during the second half of next week will depend on the track of hurricane Jimena.

Muggy conditions and showery weather will prevail during the next several days, especially in the afternoon hours. Winds will become mostly southerly through much of the work week, then become light and variable during the upcoming weekend. The extended forecast will depend heavily on the track of hurricane Jimena, which should remain well to the northeast of the islands. A brief return to drier easterly winds is possible by early next week.
