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 forecasted through midweek, then will drop off again toward the weekend. Showers should continue to favor windward and mauka sections during the nights and mornings through midweek under the trade winds. Afternoon clouds, but only a few showers, will then be the rule for interior and leeward sections by the end of the week.
