Looking Ahead

We expect nice weather and light winds until a cold front arrives and moves down the island chain late Saturday through Sunday. A breezy, cool and dry north to northeast wind will fill in behind the front. A stable and somewhat cool and dry trade wind flow is expected early next week. Winds will decrease and shift southerly late Wednesday and Thursday as another front approaches the state by the next weekend.
