Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Moisture from an old front and light winds will result in a unsettle weather pattern for the next few days. A late season front is expected to move down the island chain late Friday, stalling over the eastern part of the chain late in the weekend. Drier weather with modest trades will return to the remaining islands by Sunday.
