Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

Moderate to breezy trade wind flow is expected through Friday night. A wet trade wind pattern is expected tonight and Thursday with more typical trade wind weather returning Thursday night through Friday night. The remnants of former Tropical Cyclone Howard will move through over the weekend into early next week. During that time we will have the potential for heavy rainfall. Conditions should improve Tuesday through the middle of next week ahead of Tropical cyclone Ivette or its remnants.
