Partly cloudy in windward and mauka spots with scattered showers overnight. Partly cloudy for leeward areas with isolated showers. Low temperatures from 68° to 74°. Trade winds from 15 to 20 mph.
Breezy trade winds are forecasted to pick up again on Monday and Tuesday. Conditions should be stable with clouds and showers favoring windward and mauka areas. Pockets of moisture riding in on the trade winds may periodically boost showers, allowing a few showers to spread to the leeward areas of the smaller islands.
