High pressure building north of the state will strengthen the trade winds to moderate levels today and locally breezy levels tonight. Fairly dry conditions are expected to remain in place through the day. Some brief MVFR cigs will be possible across windward areas, but prevailing VFR conditions are expected at all terminals. MVFR cigs and/or vsbys will be more common in passing showers for windward areas tonight, with VFR conditions expected in leeward areas.

No AIRMETs are currently in effect. AIRMET Tango may be needed for moderate low level turbulence over and downwind of the terrain late this afternoon or tonight.
