Looking Ahead

A developing low pressure system north of the islands will bring clouds and showers, and a slight chance of thunderstorms, to the islands today. A cold front will move down the island chain later today and tonight as the low moves away, with strengthening northerly winds expected after the front passes. Windy conditions will develop through Friday, with very windy conditions and unsettled weather expected over the weekend as the low strengthens and moves back toward the islands. Unsettled weather may persist into the middle of next weed as the low lingers in the island vicinity.
