Tonight

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

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. Variable winds are forecasted up to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 70° to 75° are expected.

 

 

Looking Ahead 

Weakening trade winds are expected to weaken further on Friday, with sea breezes becoming more prominent by day and land breezes by night. Shower activity is forecasted to shift from windward slopes mainly at night and during the morning to interior and leeward areas each afternoon, though rainfall amounts should remain modest.
