Windy trade winds are forecast through about Thursday before dropping off a bit Friday into Saturday. Wet weather continues for parts of the state today as an old front pushes down the island chain. This rainfall is expected to be mainly for windward areas but some leeward spots could see some showers pushing over the mountains due to our breezy winds. Drier conditions are forecast Thursday. Winds are expected to weaken later this week.
We expect northeast winds around 15 to 30 mph with higher gusts. Mostly cloudy skies are forecast with windward showers likely. Morning sunshine for leeward spots with isolated morning showers and afternoon clouds with scattered showers. Some areas of haze as well. Temperatures up to 79° to 84°.
