ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with scattered showers for windward areas. Leeward areas could get a few evening showers, then clearing is expected through the night as the land breeze takes hold. Variable winds are forecasted up to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.

 

 

Looking Ahead 

Trade winds are expected to decrease into the weekend making local land and sea breezes more widespread. Areas of moisture are forecasted to reach the islands at times, bringing some clouds and showers. Clouds and showers will also begin to develop over mauka areas each afternoon for the next few days. Trade winds are expected to return next week.
