Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

The trade winds are expected to pick up and become breezy to gusty on Thursday through the weekend. A more stable air mass is also expected to settle over the islands by this weekend. This will limit afternoon showers over leeward slopes. The breezy trades will carry some of these showers over to leeward spots. The remnants of a front could bring an increase in trade showers late in the weekend.

 

Today
