Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are expected through the holiday weekend. Passing showers are expected for mainly windward areas and forecast to be light. A disturbance will move in Wednesday and make the atmosphere unstable, so showers may become more active through Thursday. The atmosphere will become more stable and much drier over the weekend, resulting in a decrease in rainfall. Windy weather is expected toward the weekend.
