Trade showers in forecast, diminishing Sunday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Trade showers that began Saturday should taper off and give way to drier, but still somewhat cloudy conditions by late Saturday into Sunday.

The National Weather Service said an upper level low was west of the state, bringing high clouds over the islands. These clouds also obscured some of the lower clouds bringing in some scattered showers, especially for Oahu. Those showers are anticipated to diminish by afternoon.

Weather is usually a bit different for the Kona side of the Big Island of Hawaii. Normal conditions for that area will prevail, with afternoon clouds and occasional pop-up showers, but heavy downpours are not expected.

Tradewinds are expected to remain in the 10 to 20 mile per hour range through the weekend.
