The windward side is forecasted to get mostly cloudy skies and showers are likely. Leeward spots are cloudy to start and clearing is expected. Northeast winds are forecasted from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 67° to 73° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

A weakening front northwest of Kauai is expected to reach the islands on Thursday as it dissipates and loses steam. Behind this front a return to trade winds is forecasted, which is expected to continue through early next week. Lingering moisture will enhance windward showers through the weekend.
