Synopsis: A slackening of the pressure gradient due to the presence of a frontal trough just north of the islands will cause a reduction in the winds over and around the islands during the next few days. In addition, the movement of this frontal trough will also generate northerly swells resulting in hazardous sea conditions along coastal areas. The presence of a dry and stable airmass will continue to restrict shower activity over and around the islands during that time.

Weather tonight: Mostly fair and cool conditions.

Weather tomorrow: Partly sunny skies in general with a 20 percent or slight chance of a brief early morning shower.

Winds: East at 15 to 28 km/h or 8 to 15 mph becoming lighter and variable overnight.

Seas: 1.8 to 2.8 meters or 6 to 9 feet, with north easterly swells of 1.8 meters or 6 feet.

Therefore, both small craft and high surf advisories remain in place mainly for coastal waters north and east of the islands.

Sunrise tomorrow:  6:30 am.
