East winds are expected up to 15 mph tonight. Partly cloudy skies with isolated showers for leeward areas. Windward spots are expected to get scattered showers after midnight. Low temperatures from 70° to 75° are expected.
Light-east southeast flow will continue through the day Thursday. A somewhat unstable airmass along with sufficient moisture at the surface will likely result in some moderate to heavy showers at times through Wednesday. Trade winds will briefly strengthen from Thursday night through Friday night. An increase in showers and humidity is expected this weekend as remnant moisture from a former tropical cyclone moves across Hawaii this weekend.
