Looking Ahead

Breezy trade winds will gradually decrease on Sunday then drop to moderate strength for Monday and Tuesday. Rather wet trade wind weather will trend drier late tonight, leading to limited windward rainfall and dry leeward conditions Sunday through Tuesday. Hurricane Hector will be crossing the region during the middle of the work week, though it is still too early to determine impacts on local weather.
