Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

We expect increasing showers as tropical moisture moves over the islands. Trade winds will push the moisture into the windward slopes where the majority of rainfall will occur, while leeward locations will see passing showers. Wet conditions will linger into Friday morning before clearing in the afternoon. Lighter winds and muggy conditions are on tap from Sunday into next week.
