Tonight 

Scattered showers are expected for windward areas with partly cloudy skies tonight. Leeward spots are forecasted to get mostly cloudy skies to start and clearing as the land breeze takes hold. Variable winds are expected up to 15 mph with low temperatures from 67° to 72°.

 

Looking Ahead

The moderate easterly trade winds we’ve been experiencing will weaken on Tuesday, leading to daytime sea breezes and scattered showers across leeward and interior sections from time to time. Trade winds are expected to rebuild on Wednesday, likely returning the focus for rainfall to windward slopes.
