Today our weather pattern is expected to change to a local land and sea breeze pattern. That means we expect mostly sunny mornings with afternoon cloud cover as the land heats up and spawns a sea breeze. Some isolated light showers may accompany the afternoon clouds. Winds are variable up to 15 mph. High temperatures are forecasted to fall in the range of 78° to 83°.
UV index at 8 (“very high” exposure level)
Mostly clear skies are forecasted. Any afternoon/evening cloud cover due to convection should clear up as the land breeze takes hold and pushed them back out to sea. Low temperatures from 67° to 72° degrees are expected. Variable winds up to 15 mph are expected.

Weakening trade winds will turn southeasterly on Wednesday, as a weak front approaches from the west. This front is expected to bring some showers and light winds to the islands Thursday and Friday, then light northeasterly trades will fill back on over the weekend. A stronger front may approach the islands early next week.
