Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

A series of weak fronts passing north of the islands throughout the week will result in the disruption of trade winds across the islands at times, with brief periods of land and sea breezes. A strong cold front will bring unsettled weather to the area next weekend, and the coolest airmass of the year will overspread the islands in its wake.

 

Today
