Puna Weather

Sunday 19th March 2023

Today and Monday plenty of sun and continued dry.

Late Monday and Tuesday increasing clouds with widely scattered showers.

Wednesday through Friday frequent showers, possibly heavy at times. Also expect isolated thunder and mountain top snow. Winds moderate to breezy from the southeast.

Next weekend looks like wet Trades with moderate to breezy easterly winds and scattered windward showers, mostly during the late night and morning hours.
Our long lived ridge aloft keeps us dry for another couple of days (1st chart). The ridge weakens and exits to the east as a jet trough amplifies to our west next week (2nd chart).

Colder air aloft and moist convergent low level flow combine to bring active weather next week. The southeast flow will favor areas from Hilo to Kau, but all areas should get some showers.
