Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Light winds and mostly clear skies are expected through Tuesday. A weak front passing from west to east across the state from late Tuesday night through Wednesday will bring low clouds and a chance of showers. This will be followed by dry northerly flow filling in behind the front. Trade winds will return Thursday and Friday, which will focus low clouds and isolated light showers mainly along windward facing terrain. Next weekend the forecast calls for a return to light and variable winds.
