ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

For leeward areas, partly cloudy skies are expected tonight with clearing as the night goes on. Windward spots are partly cloudy with scattered showers. Northeast winds are forecasted from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 73° to 78° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead 

Winds will become locally breezy on Wednesday as a rather stable rainfall pattern focuses modest showers over windward slopes. Trade winds will persist into the weekend, when an increase in tropical moisture will likely bring additional showers to portions of the island chain. An increase in mainly windward rainfall is possible this weekend. The latest official forecast from the National Hurricane Center calls for dissipation of tropical depression 08°E far east of the state on Thursday. One weather model tracks the remnant moisture over the eastern end of the state as early as Saturday, while the other model is about twelve hours slower with the arrival of the moisture. The forecast is painted generally wetter over the eastern portion of the state into early next week.
