Occasional showers are expected for windward and mauka areas tonight. Leeward spots are forecasted to be mostly cloudy with scattered showers in the evening, then isolated showers after midnight. East winds are forecasted around 15 mph. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Trade winds can be expected through the remainder of the week and on through the weekend. Clouds and passing showers will tend to favor windward and mauka areas today through Wednesday. A disturbance near the islands is expected to increase shower activity from Wednesday night through Thursday night, especially in windward and mauka spots. Drier weather is expected over the weekend.
