An area of enhanced moisture associated with remnants of an old front, will approach from the north this morning and then push through the islands this afternoon and this evening. As a result, expect conditions to remain rather wet across windward and mauka areas with some of the showers drifting into leeward sections of the smaller islands as well. Trade winds are forecast to slowly return across the island chain through Monday. More typical trade wind weather is expected Tuesday through next weekend. Showers will focus primarily over windward and mauka areas through the week.
We expect mostly cloudy skies with showers likely for windward spots. Partly cloudy with afternoon showers for leeward areas. Winds are variable up to 15 mph with local sea breezes developing. High temperatures from 82° to 87°.
UV index at 12 (“extreme” exposure level)
Northeast winds tonight around 15 mph with local land breezes. Skies should clear as the night goes on. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.
