Locally breezy trade winds are expected through the weekend. The trades will push clouds and some showers over windward areas but stable conditions are forecast so rainfall amounts should be light. Winds will weaken and shift out of the south next week as a front approaches from the northwest. Shower activity will increase as the atmosphere become more moist and unstable.
Today we expect mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers for windward and mauka spots and mostly cloudy skies in leeward spots in the afternoon. Northeast winds are forecast from 15 to 20 mph. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.
