Behind a dissipating front northeast winds will build back in Thursday but this will be short-lived as another front approaches and veers our winds back out of the southeast again on Friday. The next front is forecast to be stronger and will push through the island chain over the weekend bringing rain and clouds as it moves through. Gusty trade winds are forecast to fill in behind the front Sunday through Monday.
