Mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers in windward and mauka areas tonight. Partly cloudy skies are expected for leeward areas with isolated showers passing into lee spots from time to time on our gusty trades. Trade winds are expected from 15 to 25 mph with higher gusts. Low temperatures from 68° to 73°.
Locally breezy trade winds are expected through the end of the work week. The trades are forecasted to bring passing showers to windward areas with a few reaching leeward locations on the smaller islands. Trades are expected to drop to moderate levels for the weekend as an old frontal cloud band moves south over the islands during the weekend and brings increasing showers.
