Our usual tradewinds are gone, replaced by Kona winds from the south which likely means more vog, humid conditions and the possibility of afternoon showers in leeward areas, National Weather Service forecasters say.
A weather system approaching from the northwest has cut off the tradewind flow and the voggy, humid weather is likely to continue into early next week, forecasters say.
The front is not expected to move over the islands. But the moisture in the air may bring an increased chance of showers to Kauai. The Big Island may also see an increased chance of showers because of afternoon heating.
Forecasters say lighter showers are expected on other islands, mostly in the afternoon.
There is some good news for surfers, a south swell is predicted to arrive tonight and peak tomorrow with wave faces up to 7 feet,.
