East winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph tonight. Isolated showers are forecasted for leeward spots with mostly cloudy skies and showers are likely for windward and mauka areas. Low temperatures from 71° to 76° are expected.
Locally breezy trade winds are expected through much of the weekend, with a slight decrease in wind speeds possible early next week. The trades will keep showers focused over windward areas, except for afternoon showers over the Kona slopes. Remnants from an old front may bring an increase in trade wind showers to the north end of the state late in the weekend and early next week.
