Looking Ahead

Moderate to breezy trade winds will begin to trend down tonight through Thursday night as the strong ridge that has been in place to the north weakens and shifts southward. Clouds and showers will continue to focus over windward locations into Thursday, with a few showers spilling over to leeward areas periodically. Friday through the weekend, winds are forecast to become light and variable, which will result in land and sea breeze conditions each day. The best chance for clouds and showers through this period will remain over interior areas through the afternoons and early evenings. This trend will continue into early next week as a front approaches the state.
