Looking Ahead

Light wind and a rather dry stable weather pattern will continue through Friday. A dissipating front will usher in some light to moderate trades on Saturday. Remnants of the front however will linger over the rest of the weekend and provide some trades showers to the smaller islands favoring the windward and mountain areas.
