I'm a retired tropical fruit farmer who now grows as a hobby and I give almost all of what I grow to the needy of my community.

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.
