    A satellite image of the Pacific, taken at 11:10 a.m. today, shows areas of moisture headed toward Hawaii.

Breezy tradewinds are expected to bring low clouds and showers to the windward and mauka sides of the Hawaiian isles throughout the week, according to forecasters, mostly overnight and early mornings. More showers are also in store, starting Saturday night or Sunday.

The National Weather Service says “gusty trades’ may also carry showers to the leeward side. Clouds and showers are expected to develop each afternoon and linger into the evening over parts of Hawaii island’s leeward side.

Today’s skies are mostly overcast, with highs ranging from 82 to 87 degrees Fahrenheit. Lows tonight dip to 70 to 75 degrees.

Trades are expected to remain at 15 to 25 mph today through Sunday.

Former Tropical Depression Felicia, meanwhile, is now a remnant low located about 860 miles east-southeast of Hilo. Felicia continues weakening while moving toward the west-southwest at about 15 mph.

Felicia is expected to pass south of the isles in a few days, keeping breezy trades in place toward the end of the workweek, forecasters said. Felicia may also bring more showers to parts of the state, especially the windward side of Hawaii island.

Remnants of former Tropical Cyclone Guillermo are expected to reach the isles this weekend. Forecasters currently expect wet tradewind conditions to develop from Saturday night through Monday morning, but no heavy rainfall.

Surf remains below advisory levels on all sides – at 1 to 3 feet for north shores, and 0 to 2 feet for west shores today and Thursday.

Surf along south shores rises from 2 to 4 feet today to 3 to 5 feet on Thursday due to a series of small, southerly swells, and surf along east shores lowers from 5 to 7 feet today to 4 to 6 feet on Thursday.

A small craft advisory covering Maalaea Bay, the Pailolo and Alenuihaha channels and waters south of Hawaii island due to east winds of 20 to 25 knots remains in effect through 6 a.m. Thursday.
