A dry spell now

By: KeleHawaii, 8:52 AM GMT on October 30, 2012

I guess our normal rain has moved to the eastern part of the US? It's been dry ever since the superstorm wound up in the Atlantic!

Not much in the way of changes

Things have been the same for over a week now. Light showers here and there yielding an average of no more than a quarter inch per 24 hours and normal temps in the range of 82 high and 70 low at sea level as reported in Hilo.

Quite rainy

It has been so for the past 36 hours and it appears that it will taper off a bit in the next couple of days.

Trades have returned

So far, however, only very light rain has occurred but the VOG has cleared out from nearly the entire island chain. That is a big relief!

The lack of Trades has caused a lot of VOG

By: KeleHawaii, 3:04 AM GMT on October 09, 2012

The winds have been almost nil save for the orographic lifting of the air over the ocean when the land heats up and blows the vog from this eastern slope up to the heights of the volcanoes.

It has been much worse over the Kona side and the entire rest of the island chain all the way to Kaua'i.

It will return tonight when the sea breeze dies after sunset and the air, due to being cooler at higher elevations, wants to sink down to the coast.

Tomorrow will likely be identical to today with a higher daytime temp than is normal for this time of year. It got up to 85 here this afternoon.
