    Tonight

    Mostly clear skies are expected tonight with just isolated showers in windward and mauka areas. East winds are forecasted around 15 mph becoming light and variable. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° are expected.

     

    Looking Ahead

    Trade winds are expected to begin to weaken on Wednesday, then break down into a light sea breeze pattern on Thursday as a weakening front approaches from the northwest. This front is forecasted to reach Kauai on Friday, then dissipate over the weekend as it moves down the island chain. Behind the front (early next week), light trade winds are expected to fill in.
