Looking Ahead

Solid trade winds are forecast through the middle of next week. The trades will pick up Thursday night through the holiday weekend. A much drier airmass is expected to move in from the east on Thursday and should keep trade showers to a minimum Thursday night through Saturday. The airmass will moisten up quickly Saturday night as some deep tropical moisture gets drawn northward into the islands, bringing a wet trade wind pattern to the state through the remainder of the holiday weekend and into the middle of next week.
