Tonight

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with scattered windward showers. 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 69° to 74° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Breezy trades are expected for the next several days. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas, with some of the larger showers reaching leeward locations at times. The trades are expected to decrease by the middle of the week. By Friday, a disturbance high in the atmosphere may develop near the Big Island and bring increasing showers over the eastern half of the island chain.
