Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Winds are expected to diminish Wednesday through the end of the work week as high pressure pulls farther away from the state and a cold front approaches from the west. The cold front will then stall out north of Kauai Thursday night and Friday. This will allow for afternoon sea breezes and night time land breezes in many areas through late in the week. Another cold front is expected to move into and possibly through the islands Saturday and Saturday night.
