Synopsis

Strong northerly winds will rapidly diminish overnight and Wednesday as a ridge of high pressure approaches the islands. The ridge will settle over the islands by Wednesday night, and remain through Friday, leading to light winds, cool weather, and only a slight chance of a light sprinkle. Another cold front is expected on Saturday, bringing a brief period of showers, increasing winds, and a reinforcing shot of cool dry air. Winds will diminish Sunday and Monday as mostly dry weather persists.
