Looking Ahead
Light to moderate trades are expected over the state into early next week. An increase in showers is possible over the islands over the holiday weekend will weaken the trade winds and allow sea breezes to produce afternoon clouds and showers through early next week. A front may move over the islands by the middle of next week with cool north winds behind it.
