Looking Ahead

Trade winds are expected to gradually increase through Monday, becoming locally breezy by Tuesday. The returning trade winds will maintain the mostly dry weather pattern through Monday, but moisture associated with a weakening front is expected to bring an increase in windward showers from Monday night through Tuesday night. Winds will shift to the southeast and weaken on Wednesday, with light winds prevailing into next weekend. Additional fronts may bring increased showers by the end of the week, and again next weekend.
