Cool, breezy and a bit wet for weekend

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Keep a sweater handy. Cool northeasterly breezes will blow through the islands into Saturday, with daytime temperatures only reaching into the mid 70's and overnight lows in the low to mid 60's, with some areas dipping down into the upper 50s.

The brisk northeast winds will also be blowing in a few showers, mainly for the windward areas of the islands, into Saturday as well.

A few changes are in store for Sunday, especially for the eastern end of the state. A shortwave trough will draw up clouds over the state, and bring more moisture from the south over the Big Island and possibly Maui Sunday or Sunday night, but the showers shouldn't be as heavy or persistent they were in the last round of wet weather. The trough may also mean even more snow for the summit areas of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

The stubborn area of moisture may linger near the Big Island into the middle of the week while the smaller islands will have somewhat drier, cooler weather with northeast winds.
