Frequent showers are expected for windward and mauka areas tonight. Leeward spots are forecasted to be mostly cloudy with scattered showers in the evening, then clearing should take place. East winds are forecasted from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Locally breezy trade winds are expected to continue through early Wednesday. Low clouds and showers embedded in the winds should affect mainly windward and mauka sections of the island chain. A disturbance high in the atmosphere is expected to pass over the islands towards the second half of the week, bringing wet weather across most of the state, with possible locally heavy rainfall.
