Looking Ahead

Light winds and mostly dry weather should continue through Thursday with trade winds gradually filling in Friday and into the weekend. During this time, windward showers will favor nights and mornings, however we still expect a relatively dry pattern. Trade winds are expected to weaken Monday as a front approaches, but stronger trade winds Tuesday and Wednesday of next week could deliver increased windward showers. Periods of vog are possible mainly on Thursday and Monday.
