Partly cloudy skies are expected with isolated showers. South winds are expected around 15 mph with local land breezes developing in some spots. Low temperatures from 66° to 71°.
Sunday we expect partly cloudy skies to start and scattered showers as the front approaches. Hazy weather is expected to stick around and winds are forecasted to shift out of the northwest then northeast as the front dissipates and moves out of the area. High temperatures from 79° to 84° and low temperatures from 66° to 71°.
A front is approaching from the northwest. Locally breezy southeast winds ahead of the front will focus showers over southeast areas of the islands and carry volcanic haze north toward the other islands. There will also be afternoon clouds and showers over interior areas Saturday afternoon. A band of showers along the front is expected to reach Kauai Saturday evening, then stall and weaken over the central islands by Sunday night. Behind the front, breezy trade winds and showery weather is expected for windward areas through much of next week.
