Surface high to the north will gradually move SSE and slowly weaken the E winds, but these are still strong enough to justify AIRMET TANGO for low-level turbulence to the lee of the higher terrain through the night. Clouds and a few light showers continue to create MVFR conditions over N and E sections of all islands, so AIRMET SIERRA is still in place for mountain obscuration. This should continue overnight and into Thursday.
