Tonight & Sunday night

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

For leeward areas, partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with clearing as the night goes on. Windward spots are mostly cloudy with numerous showers. East winds are forecasted up to 15 mph. Low temperatures from 72° to 77° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Trade winds will weaken further through the weekend as the remains of former tropical cyclone Enrique passes north of us. This will also bring another increase in moisture and humidity. The lighter winds and abundant moisture will result in some afternoon showers especially over interior and leeward areas. During the nights, trades will remain strong enough to keep a few showers across windward areas. Stronger trades and a more typical weather pattern are expected to return by mid week.
