Looking Ahead

Winds will weaken and veer to the southeast Monday with light south winds then prevailing through the rest of the week. Clouds and showers will favor windward areas through early Monday, with increased chances for leeward and interior clouds and showers from Monday afternoon through Friday. Some of these showers could become heavy, with a slight chance of thunderstorms Tuesday, as moisture increases and the atmosphere becomes unstable. Light winds will continue into next weekend, when a somewhat drier weather pattern may develop.
