Partly cloudy skies are expected with scattered showers. South/southeast winds are expected from 10 to 20 mph with local land breezes developing in some spots. Low temperatures from 68° to 73°.
A front is approaching from the northwest. Locally breezy southeast winds ahead of the front should focus showers over southeast areas of the islands and carry volcanic haze over the smaller islands. A band of showers along the front is expected to reach Kauai Saturday evening reaching Maui around Monday morning. Behind the front we expect breezy trade winds and showery weather for windward areas early next week.
