Looking Ahead

A steady increase in trade wind speeds is expected into Friday, with locally windy conditions developing by tonight. Winds will gradually weaken and shift to the southeast on Saturday, and then become light and variable from Sunday into next week as a front stalls near the islands. The island atmosphere will remain stable for the next couple of days, with brief windward showers favoring nights and mornings, although an increase in windward showers is possible Friday night and Saturday. After a mostly dry Sunday, moisture associated with the stalling front may bring an increase in showers early next week.
