We expect partly sunny skies today with high clouds streaming overhead. Windward spots are expected to be wet in the early morning with scattered showers forecasted through the day. Scattered showers are expected in the afternoon for leeward areas as winds weaken and local sea breezes take hold. Light and variable winds are forecasted from 5 to 15 mph. High temperatures from 79° to 84°.

Tonight

Partly to mostly cloudy skies are forecasted with scattered showers. Variable winds are forecasted from 5 to 15 mph. Low temperatures of 66° to 73° degrees are expected.

Next Full Moon: 8:06 a.m. on Mar. 5

 

Looking Ahead

Trade winds are expected to deliver a band of showers to windward areas early Thursday, with a few showers drifting to leeward areas. Northeast trade winds are expected to strengthen over the weekend. An area of instability near the islands will act to focus clouds and showers over the islands, and a trend toward wetter weather can be expected into next week as the island atmosphere becomes increasingly unstable.
