Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Trade winds are expected to become gusty later in the week. Breezy conditions should then last through the much of the holiday weekend. A disturbance will bring instability that may lead to an increase in trade wind showers, some which may be briefly heavy. As the disturbance moves away, a dry and stable air mass will move over the islands from Thursday into Saturday. Trade wind showers may increase again statewide on Sunday and Monday.
