Looking Ahead

A cold front will sweep down the island chain Tuesday through Wednesday, bringing clouds and showers. Cool and strong northerly winds will increase dramatically as the front passes, with windy conditions expected into Thursday as the winds turn to the northeast. Breezy trade winds will then prevail into the weekend brining clouds and brief showers to windward areas.
