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. North winds are forecasted around 15 mph. Low temperatures from 70° to 75° are expected.
Moderate to locally strong trade winds are forecasted to continue through Wednesday morning, then decrease during the second half of the week. Showers should continue to favor windward and mauka areas. As the winds lighten during the second half of the week, look for afternoon clouds and a few showers over the interior and leeward areas of the islands.
