A high pressure ridge north of the islands will continue to provide moderate trade winds to the area for the next few days. Passing low clouds and showers carried by the winds will affect mainly windward and mountain areas, bringing brief MVFR ceiling. Otherwise VFR conditions are expected.

No AIRMET currently is in effect. AIRMET TANGO may be needed late Tuesday or Wednesday as trade winds strengthen enough for low-level mechanical turbulence to develop over mountains and south through west sections of all islands
