    Tonight 

    Mostly cloudy skies with showers likely in windward and mauka areas tonight. For leeward areas we expect scattered showers. East winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph. Low temperatures from 69° to 74°.

     

    Looking Ahead

    Locally breezy trade winds are expected to continue through early Wednesday. Low clouds and showers embedded in the winds should affect mainly windward and mauka sections of the island chain, with a few showers reaching leeward areas of the smaller islands at times. A disturbance high in the atmosphere is expected to pass over the islands towards the second half of the week, bringing wet weather across most of the state, with possible locally heavy rainfall.
