Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A stable land and sea breeze pattern will continue into Tuesday. Clouds and isolated light showers will favor afternoon hours and overnight land breezes will lead to clearing and rather dry conditions over most areas at night. A weak front will move down the island chain on Wednesday, bringing increased northerly winds and modest rainfall to mainly windward facing slopes. Moderate trade wind flow will return for Thursday and Friday, with winds easing again next weekend.
