Breezy trade winds are expected to stick around through the weekend. Showers are forecast to continue moving across the islands during the next several days with rainfall focusing over windward and mauka areas. Some of the larger showers will reach leeward locations at times. Daytime heating will cause clouds and showers to develop over the Kona slopes each afternoon.
We expect partly to mostly cloudy skies today with morning showers likely in windward and mauka spots. Showers will taper off for the afternoon. Leeward areas in Maui County may see showers occasionally drifting over from windward spots. High temperatures from 84° to 89°. Northeast winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph.
