Dry and stable weather conditions are expected for the coming week. Trade winds are expected to return Monday into Tuesday, which could a few low clouds and isolated showers along windward areas through Wednesday, mainly during the overnight and early morning hours. A front approaching from the northwest Thursday will disrupt the trade wind flow into the weekend.

First Alert: Be prepared for very smoky conditions the night of New Year’s Eve, as winds are forecast to be light and not strong enough to blow away the smoke from fireworks. Have some plans for that evening if you have respiratory issues that could be affected by the smoke.
