Looking Ahead 

Light to moderate easterly southeasterly winds and high pressure over the area will keep generally good weather conditions in place during the next couple of days. The combination of an approaching cold front from the northwest and increasing moisture over the area will bring cloud cover and increasing shower activity across the island chain starting Thursday and continuing through the weekend.
