For leeward areas and we expect a mostly clear morning and afternoon clouds with scattered showers mainly for upslope areas. Hazy skies are expected (see UHSOEST model above).
UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)
Mostly cloudy skies are expected tonight with a chance of 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. Variable winds are forecasted from 5 to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 72° to 77° are expected.
Looking Ahead & Fourth of July Weekend
We expect light trade winds to start returning to the smaller islands between Thursday night and Friday followed by some strengthening over the fourth of July weekend. A pocket of dry air now draped over the smaller islands, will slowly become wetter as the trade winds return. So, the absence of the afternoon showers may reappear most likely Friday afternoon. Light to moderate trades are forecast for the weekend which means showers for the windward and mountain areas especially nights and mornings, and isolated to scattered showers for the leeward and interior sections of all islands.
