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 67° to 72° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Breezy trade winds are expected to continue through tomorrow. The trades will focus showers over mainly windward areas, but some showers will spread to leeward areas of the smaller islands. Trade winds are expected to continue, however winds speeds should subside a bit by midweek. A disturbance high in the atmosphere may make showers more active Wednesday and Thursday, especially on the Big Island.
