An area of instability currently farther up the island chain will slowly drift eastward Friday through Saturday. Clouds and showers with some locally heavy rainfall will be possible from Friday afternoon through at least Saturday as the atmosphere becomes increasingly moist and unstable. Trade winds may rebuild on Sunday, although the unsettled weather will likely continue into next week.
