Mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with likely windward showers. Partly cloudy for leeward spots with scattered showers and clearing as the night goes on. Trade winds are forecasted from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 68° to 74° are expected.
Breezy trades are expected to gradually diminish over the next couple of days. Showers should continue to favor windward and mauka areas, especially overnight into early mornings. Some of the larger showers will reach leeward locations at times. The lee side of the Big Island will see some showers each afternoon. Slightly windier trades will return over the weekend.
