Winds are expected out of the east from 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts. High temperatures from 80° to 85° and low temperatures from 69° to 74° with partly to mostly cloudy skies for windward spots. Showers will favor the morning and overnight hours. Leeward areas can expect lots of sunshine with just isolated showers overnight if any.
A trade wind weather pattern is expected for the next several days. An area of showery clouds just upstream of the state is expected to move from east to west across the area through Saturday morning. An increase in showers will accompany this area especially over windward and mauka spots. Winds will become lighter toward during the second half of next week.
