Synopsis

The dry trade wind pattern in place will hold through the second half of the week as high pressure prevails over the region. A slight increase in moisture over the upcoming weekend may translate to better windward shower coverage with moderate to breezy trades continuing. A pattern shift is possible next week as a front and upper trough approach the area.
