Looking Ahead

ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOW AD

The weather will be controlled by a light wind pattern with daytime sea breezes and nighttime land breezes taking hold. This pattern is expected through Saturday. Trades should begin filling back in on Sunday with a return to trade wind weather and strengthen to moderate and locally breezy levels through much of next week. A period of wet trades with more frequent showers is possible during the middle part of next week, as remnants of a front push through the islands.
