Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with showers likely for windward areas. Leeward areas have a slight chance of 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 71° to 76° are expected.

 

 

Looking Ahead 

Locally breezy trade winds are expected into this weekend, with a slight decrease possible from Sunday into early next week. The trades will keep low clouds and brief showers focused mainly over windward and mauka areas, except for afternoon showers over the Kona slopes. A slight increase in showers is possible over the northwestern end of the main Hawaiian island chain starting Sunday.
