Light trade winds are forecast to gradually strengthen Thursday. Moderate trade winds are expected to continue into the weekend bringing clouds and a few showers to windward areas, mainly on Friday and Saturday. The atmosphere is quite stable so that will limit shower coverage and intensity. Winds are forecast to weaken and shift to the southeast on Saturday and Sunday. Gusty trade winds are then expected to return along with showers for windward spots making for a wet trade wind pattern from Monday night into Wednesday.
Today we expect mostly sunny skies. In the afternoon partly cloudy skies are forecast with a slight chance of showers. Winds are out of the northeast from 5 to 15 mph. High temperatures from 77° to 82° with a cooler start to the day before warming up.
UV index at 10 (“very high” exposure level)
