Mostly 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. Trade winds are forecasted from 10 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 70° to 75° are expected.

 

 

Looking Ahead 

Moderate trade winds are expected to persist through at least the middle of this week, then may decrease toward the end of the week and into the weekend. Clouds and showers should favor windward areas, mainly during nights and mornings. Clouds and scattered showers are forecasted to continue to develop over the leeward Big Island slopes each afternoon.
