Gusty trades will continue to weaken and are expected to veer east-southeasterly on Monday and will drop off much more by Tuesday. We should actually see a period of locally-driven land breezes as early as Monday night, with onshore sea breezes on Tuesday. This will be more of a dry convective pattern with some afternoon and evening clouds across interiors of the islands but limited shower coverage.
Northeast winds are expected today around 15 mph. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast for windward and mauka areas with occasional morning showers and showers likely in the afternoon. Leeward side should be mostly clear with scattered afternoon showers as cloud cover builds. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
