Looking Ahead

Gusty trades will continue to weaken and are expected to veer east-southeasterly on Monday and will drop off much more by Tuesday. We should actually see a period of locally-driven land breezes as early as Monday night, with onshore sea breezes on Tuesday. This will be more of a dry convective pattern with some afternoon and evening clouds across interiors of the islands but limited shower coverage.
