Looking Ahead

Dry and pleasant conditions associated with high pressure will hold into the start of the upcoming week. Trade winds will gradually trend down through Monday, potentially becoming light enough for land and sea breeze conditions for a brief period late Monday through early Tuesday for some portions of the state as a weak cold front approaches and moves into the area. The front is forecast to quickly advance down the island chain late Tuesday through Wednesday, bringing increasing rain chances. Gusty northerly winds along with drier and cooler conditions will follow Wednesday through Thursday. A return of a more typical trade wind pattern will be possible Friday into next weekend.
