Looking Ahead

Gentle to moderate trades will continue through Friday, leading to a land and sea breeze weather pattern for most leeward areas. Stable conditions and a relatively dry weather pattern will limit any rainfall. A strong cold front will sweep down the island chain late in the day Saturday and Saturday night, accompanied by showers and strong and gusty northerly winds through Sunday. Winds will lighten up and a cool and dry airmass will prevail over the islands early next week.
