Looking Ahead

Mostly dry and pleasant weather can be expected over the weekend thanks to a stable trade wind air mass. Winds will gradually diminish over the weekend and on into early next week as the ridge of high pressure weakens, due to a front approaching the islands. The front is expected to move down the island chain from late Tuesday through Wednesday with showers increasing with its passage. Cooler and breezy weather will fill in behind the front.
