It has been pretty hot and muggy after the storms.  Usually this happens when our natural air conditioning, our island trade winds stops blowing.  Our trade winds usually blow down from the north and north east and that is why the north eastern part of our Island is called the windward side.  Down wind from the windward side, we have the leeward side on the south western part of the Island.

Every once in a while we get winds coming up from the south and south west.   These are our Kona winds.  They bring up vog from the Big Island and increase problems associate with the vog, including respiratory problems and headaches.  I think the Kona winds have been blowing.

But, that is why we love our trades!
