Muggy, rainy, voggy weather predicted

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:30 p.m. HST, Oct 23, 2012

Kona winds are expected to bring muggy conditions, vog and afternoon leeward showers to the islands starting this afternoon, National Weather Service forecasters say.

A weather system in the north central Pacific is blocking the usual trade wind flow and is expected to remain in place through Friday. 

The weather service says the best chance of afternoon showers is today and Wednesday because of heavy moisture in the air. 

Although, high clouds may cool things off a little bit.

Forecasters say the trade winds should return by the weekend.

A recent study by the Federal Government's NOAA indicated that Kona wind days in Hawaii increased by 3 months in the last 30 years. That means that Kona wind days increased by 100% in the last 30 years. These kinds of facts clearly indicate that man made climate change is occurring at an alarming pace. I remember when I was sitting on my surfboard in 1968 at Hau Bush on a 10 to 15 mile an hour tradewind day and looked towards Diamond Head and saw smog (in 1968 the volcano wasn't erupting so there was no vog), I knew that air pollution was going be a problem in Hawaii. Little did I know how right I would be.

I don't think that includes the Waianae side. Bet a dozen donuts no rain over here.
