Tonight 

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. Trade winds are forecasted up to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Trade winds are expected to stay relatively light through Monday. The weaker than normal trades should continue to push showers over windward areas, especially during the nights and mornings but should remain light enough to allow daytime heating to produce clouds and showers over interior and leeward sections again Monday afternoon. Trade winds are forecasted to strengthen starting late Monday and become locally breezy by Tuesday through the rest of the week. The stronger trade winds will keep showers focused over windward and mauka areas, except for afternoon showers developing over the Kona slopes on the Big Island.
