We expect mostly sunny skies on the leeward side and partly to mostly cloudy skies for the windward side with morning scattered showers likely.

Mostly cloudy in windward and mauka spots with likely showers overnight. Partly cloudy for leeward areas with isolated showers. Low temperatures from 68° to 73°. Trade winds from 15 to 20 mph.
Breezy trades are expected to gradually diminish over the next couple of days. Showers should continue to favor windward and mauka areas, especially overnight into early mornings. Some of the larger showers will reach leeward locations at times. Slightly windier trades will return over the weekend.
