Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Moderate to breezy trade winds are forecast for the next couple of days. Moisture associated with a front is expected to move over the islands through Wednesday. While clouds and showers will be most frequent over windward areas, a few showers will spread to leeward areas from time to time. Trade winds should diminish by the end of the week, with light and variable winds expected again next weekend.
