East to southeast trade winds will weaken overnight, and remain light through Wednesday, delivering clouds and showers to windward areas during nights and mornings. The light winds will allow afternoon clouds and a few showers to develop over leeward areas Tuesday, and maybe again on Wednesday. Moderate trade winds are expected to return Thursday, and deliver brief windward showers through next weekend.
