The moderate trades will become lighter during the next several days with clouds and a few light showers favoring windward and mountain areas.

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

A high far north of the area will maintain locally breezy trade winds through tomorrow night. A cloud area moving along in the trades will keep the smaller islands rather wet today. Another cloud area will hit the Big Island tonight. The trade winds will weaken starting Wednesday night and rainfall will decrease as the atmosphere dries out. Hurricane Olaf is forecast to pass well east of the islands over the weekend. Olaf is expected to bring large surf to the islands and turn the winds out of the north, but it is too soon to know what other impacts Olaf will have. Updated: 10/20/2015 9:30 am HST

Friday, October 16, 2015

Moderate trade winds will persist into next week as high pressure remains north of the islands. Tropical moisture from former tropical cyclone Nora and an old front will spread across the island chain through the weekend, resulting in a wet trade wind pattern. This moisture will pass west of the islands by Monday. Updated: 10/16/2015 12:29 pm HST

Tuesday, October 13, 2015

A weak front will move down the island chain over the next couple of days with northerly winds filling in. Clouds and passing showers will tend to favor windward and mauka areas. A more typical trade wind weather pattern is expected later in the week. Over the weekend there may be possible increase in clouds and showers across portions of the state as tropical moisture may spread over the area from the southeast. Updated: 10/13/2015 10:00 am HST

Sunday, October 11, 2015

A weak trough is producing a band of showery clouds, moving across the central portions of the island chain, keeping winds generally light during the next couple of days. Sea breezes will bring afternoon showers, mainly over leeward and interior locations. Some of the showers may produce locally heavy rainfall each afternoon and early evening. A few thunderstorms are possible for the Big Island and parts of Maui county this afternoon. Trade wind weather will return by mid week as the trough dissipates. Updated: 10/11/2015 4:00 am HST

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Breezy northerly winds today will transition to moderate easterly trades Thursday and continue through the weekend. 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.

Saturday, October 3, 2015

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.
