Humid, hazy weather returning

By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 04:49 p.m. HST, May 15, 2014

Muggy, voggy weather may stick around through at least the middle of next week, National Weather Service forecasters said.

The cooling northeast tradewinds will become light and shift to the southeast by the weekend, bringing hot, humid Kona weather and volcanic haze from the Big Island to the smaller islands.

Forecasters said we can expect clouds to build over leeward and interior sections during the day, possibly bringing afternoon showers. The daytime breezes from the sea will shift to land breezes at night blowing the clouds away from land.

The weather system northwest of the islands should reach Kauai by Sunday, bringing moisture and an increased chance of showers and southerly winds.

Forecasters expect hazy skies over Honolulu by Sunday night.

The muggy and hazy conditions may continue through at least Wednesday until the dissipating weather system moves away from the islands and tradewinds return in the second half of next week.

Thanks for the breaking update complete with satellite picture SA. What would I do without this story. Can you tell me if the weather tomorrow is going to be 2 degrees warmer or colder than today? I'd really like to know since it'll affect my plans to play dodgeball after work. I can only play if it's at or below 85 degrees and 80% humidity. If it's 86 degrees I need to retreat to my air conditioned house so that I don't collapse from heat stroke. Thanks again SA for the investigative reporting, you're really on the ball with every shift in the wind.
