Synopsis

A dry and stable weather pattern is expected through much of the week. Winds will temporarily trend down today, then shift out of the north-northeast and become strong in the wake of a cold front moving down the island chain tonight through Tuesday. Drier air and lighter winds are expected Wednesday through Thursday as a ridge of high pressure builds over the state. Weak frontal boundaries will approach and move through the islands Friday through the weekend resulting in an modest increase in showers.
