Looking Ahead

The trades will ease a bit today, then increase once again on Thursday as the next in a series of surface highs passes north of the islands. Late in the week and into the weekend, the trades will ease slowly. A surface trough developing near the islands early next week will give us light winds by Monday. The trades will trend less showery over the next few days, with fine weather expected for most areas over the weekend.
