Looking Ahead / Guillermo
The cloud area around tropical storm Guillermo will move across the islands through Friday bringing the islands much rainier conditions than normal through Friday. This moisture will fuel locally heavy showers but no widespread heavy rain is expected. The strongest winds and heaviest rain will likely remain north of the islands. Guillermo is forecast to weaken as it passes north of the islands tonight through Friday. Weather around the islands through Friday will depend on the track of the storm. A high remains far northeast of the islands. Once Guillermo moves west of the area, trade winds will return. The trades will push the remnant moisture from Guillermo off to the west of the islands by Saturday afternoon. Trade winds will return to the islands Friday night. Typical summertime weather is expected over the weekend into early next week.
