Tonight 

Scattered showers are expected for windward areas with partly cloudy skies becoming mostly cloudy later tonight. Isolated showers are expected in leeward spots. Trade winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph with low temperatures from 68° to 73°.

 

Looking Ahead

Trade winds are expected to continue blowing. Showers should become more active starting tomorrow evening and are expected to remain active through the weekend as tropical moisture spreads over the islands from the southeast, starting with the Big Island. The windward side of the Big Island is forecasted to get the most rain. Drier, breezier conditions are expected early next week.
