Partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with scattered showers for windward areas. Leeward areas should get mostly cloudy skies to start with clearing expected through the night as the land breeze takes hold. Trade winds are forecasted around 15 mph. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.
Trade winds are expected to continue blowing through Saturday. A cloud band moving along in the trades will clear the islands tonight so there will be more sun and fewer showers tomorrow. A disturbance north of the islands will disrupt the trade winds starting on Sunday. Afternoon sea breezes are forecasted to become more widespread and produce afternoon clouds and showers over interior and leeward areas of all the islands. Trade winds are expected to return some time early next week.
