HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Not so spooky weather this week of Halloween. Light to moderate trades likely from tonight through the Halloween weekend. Also, expect relatively dry conditions with a few brief light showers mainly over windward sections.

Light, variable winds will start Friday, and hold through the weekend, which will result in afternoon sea breezes and nighttime land breezes. It will also be relatively dry. But clouds and a few showers may develop over some leeward and interior sections each afternoon.

The downslope winds at night will result in clearing skies.
