    Tonight

    Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely for windward and mauka areas tonight. Leeward spots are only expecting isolated showers. Northeast winds are forecasted from 10 to 15 mph. Low temperatures of 66° to 71° degrees are expected.

     

    Sunday

    Windward and mauka areas are forecasted to be partly to mostly cloudy with showers likely in windward spots and isolated showers for leeward areas. Northeast winds are expected from 10 to 15 mph. High temperatures are expected from 75° to 80° and low temperatures from 66° to 71°.

     

    Looking Ahead

    Brisk and cool northeasterly winds will continue to produce wet conditions across windward slopes through early Saturday, especially on the Big Island and Maui. A gradual decrease in moisture is expected so drier weather with less passing showers are forecasted on Saturday. Deeper moisture south of the Big Island may push far enough north to increase rainfall over the Big Island (and maybe even to Maui) on Sunday and Monday and possibly again during the middle of next week. Northeast winds are expected to weaken Sunday and turn north Monday. Temperatures are expected to continue to feel cooler than normal with dew points in the upper 50s and low 60s.
