Hawaii Island Weather Update for December 6th, 2019

Wet weather is expected to continue to the early evening hours of Friday and slow progression of clearing and drier conditions expected into the weekend.


No watches or warnings are in effect at this time for Hawaii Island and Winter Storm Warning/Watch in effect earlier for Maunakea and Mauna Loa has since been canceled.


Decent amounts of snow fell on both the summits of Maunakea and Mauna Loa.


An upper trough will move east of the area tonight with a drier weather pattern filling in. Winds will be light over the weekend as high pressure moves off to a position far northeast of the area. A weak front will stall near Kauai early next week and high pressure will pass by far north of the area. Light to moderate trades can be expected early next week. Another front will approach the area around Thursday with winds becoming light once again. Trade winds may return next Friday as high pressure builds into our north.
