Looking Ahead

The dry pattern with moderate to locally breezy trades will hold through the weekend as high pressure prevails over the region. A slight increase in moisture through the weekend may translate to better windward shower coverage. A pattern shift next week remains possible due to a cold front and upper trough forecast to move into the area.
