Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Breezy trade winds are forecast to gradually weaken Friday and become light and variable by Saturday. Clouds and passing showers are expected to favor windward coasts and slopes. A strong low is expected to pass several hundred miles north of the islands on Sunday, bringing the potential for gusty west winds and increased showers as a front moves down the island chain. Light north winds are expected to bring cooler and drier weather through the first half of next week.
