A dissipating frontal cloud band continues to effect the area from Maui to the Kauai Channel at mid morning. The cloud band is producing MVFR and isolated IFR conditions mainly for Molokai and Oahu attm. An AIRMET for mtn obsc is in effect for both of those islands. Kauai and Maui may be affected later in the day so we will wait and see. The cloud band stretches east from Oahu and Molokai to 22N150W then continues off to the east northeast. The near the islands was moving south near 10 mph. Trade winds have returned to most areas so any sea and land breezes will be at the more typical areas such as Kona and perhaps, Lanai airport, if the clouds do not alter the daytime heating effect.
