Gradual clearing for windward areas is expected to continue with partly to mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers. Partly cloudy skies are expected for leeward areas. Trade winds are expected from 15 to 20 mph with low temperatures from 68° to 73°.

 

Looking Ahead

A trade wind weather pattern is expected to continue into next weekend. Increased showers are forecasted to move over the islands into Tuesday. These showers will favor windward and mountain areas, but a few will spread leeward. After the shower band passes by late Tuesday, a typical trade wind pattern is expected, with brief windward showers favoring nights and mornings.
