Locally strong trade winds will continue today. AIRMET TANGO for low level turbulence remains in place over and immediately south through west of the mountains. Winds will begin to ease up slightly this evening into Saturday. AIRMET TANGO will need to be revisited at that time.

The trade wind pattern will help focus clouds and showers over the windward and mountain areas. Enhanced moisture moving through the eastern islands this morning prompted an AIRMET SIERRA for mountain obscuration along the north and east facing slopes of the Big Island and Maui. We should start to see some improvement this afternoon for these areas, as the moisture moves to the west. AIRMET SIERRA may need to be expanded to cover the western islands this evening/tonight.
