    Looking Ahead


    Drier, more stable weather is forecast for most of the work week. Winds will weaken slightly Monday and shift out of the north-northeast, becoming gusty in the wake of a cold front moving down the island chain Monday night and Tuesday. Drier air and lighter winds are expected Wednesday through Thursday. Friday through the weekend we could see some enhanced trade wind showers.



    We expect northeast winds up to 15 to 20 mph. Partly cloudy skies are forecast with isolated windward showers. Sunny skies to start for leeward sides with some isolated  afternoon showers. Temperatures up to 79° to 84°.

    UV index at 3 (“moderate” exposure level)



    Mostly cloudy skies with scattered windward showers and isolated leeward showers. Low temperatures from 63° to 68°. Winds are expected to be north up to 15 to 25 mph.
