Mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight and windward showers are likely. Partly cloudy for leeward spots with isolated showers and clearing as the night goes on. Trade winds are forecasted from 15 to 25 mph. Low temperatures from 68° to 73° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Moderate trade winds are forecasted through the week. Conditions should be stable with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka areas. Pockets of moisture riding in on the trade winds may periodically boost showers, allowing a few showers to spread to the leeward areas of the smaller islands.
