Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Hot and muggy conditions will continue through next week. A trade wind weather pattern will remain through Saturday, bringing night time and early morning showers, with clearing by the afternoon. Winds will become light from Sunday into Tuesday as the remnant low of Celia passes a couple hundred miles north of the islands. Deep tropical moisture will move over the islands from Sunday through Wednesday, fueling locally heavy showers for both windward and leeward areas. Trade winds will return Wednesday, possibly becoming breezy Thursday and Friday as the next tropical system approaches.
