Looking Ahead

Trade winds will continue to gradually build across the area through Monday as high pressure gain further control of the islands. Expect moderate to locally strong trades to make a brief return between Monday night and Tuesday night. Trades will be slightly lighter for the second half of the new week. The somewhat unstable air mass will slowly become more stable through Monday as well, with a return to a more typical trade wind shower pattern.
