Looking Ahead

Light to moderate trade winds will continue through the day today, then begin to increase into the moderate to breezy category by Sunday as a weak trough of low pressure moves through from east to west. Humid and unsettled conditions associated with this trough will translate to increasing rainfall chances and potentially a few thunderstorms. Breezy and drier trade wind conditions are expected to fill in Sunday night through the early portion of next week. Although it is too early to determine how the islands will be impacted, Hurricane Lane is forecast to track through the region near the islands through the middle part of next week.
