Weekend Nights

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Partly cloudy skies are expected with scattered showers for windward spots. Leeward spots should be partly cloudy with isolated showers. Northeast winds are forecasted from 10 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.

 

Looking Ahead

Breezy trades are expected through the weekend, with trades slowly diminishing early next week. A few showers can be expected to ride in on the trades from time to time, affecting mainly windward and mauka areas during the nights and mornings. It is still too soon to say if hurricane Hilda, located far to the southeast of Hawaii, will have any effect on our weather toward the middle of next week.
