Tonight

Mostly cloudy skies are expected with showers likely in windward areas. Leeward spots are forecasted to get isolated showers. Breezier northeast winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures of 65° to 71° expected.

 

Looking Ahead

A weakening front northwest of Kauai is expected to reach the islands on Thursday as it dissipates and loses steam. Behind this front a return to trade winds is forecasted, which is expected to continue through early next week. Lingering moisture will enhance windward showers through the weekend.
