Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are forecasted to keep blowing at least through mid-week. Drier and more stable air is expected to spread across the islands. The trade winds will carry a band of showers over the islands by Tuesday morning and keep windward areas rather wet and cloudy through Wednesday. The atmosphere may turn moist and unstable again next weekend, bringing the threat of more unsettled weather.
