    Looking Ahead

    A cold front is forecast to stall and dissipate over the eastern end of the state today through Saturday. Trades will return for a brief period beginning tonight, then quickly shift toward the south and weaken Sunday through Monday as another cold front approaches and stalls near the western end of the state. Winds will remain light through much of the upcoming week as the ridge of high pressure shifts southward over the islands.
