Looking Ahead

Moderate to breezy trades will slightly weaken tonight through Thursday night, then strengthen once again late Friday through the weekend as high pressure builds north of the state in the wake of a passing front. A combination of an upper trough moving over the region and residual moisture associated with the tail-end of the front passing to the north will support increasing shower coverage over portions of the state through the weekend. Strong trades will likely hold through early next week.
