Looking Ahead

We expect to dry out a bit Friday as moderate to fresh trade winds work their way back into the forecast. Moisture on the edges of Tropical depression Three-C may bring back increasing showers and humidity this weekend. Increasing wind and rain are expected for the western end of the chain early next week, but the forecast details are highly dependent on the eventual track and intensity of the system.
