High pressure N of the state will maintain moderate to breezy trade winds over the area. Morning amdar reports show winds up to 30 kt, with the strongest winds between 3-5 thousand feet. Airmet tango for low level turb is posted for areas over and S thru W of the terrain. Expect this to remain valid at least into Saturday.

Trade winds will focus showers over windward and mountain areas with some showers blowing over to leeward areas. Expect mainly VFR conditions with only brief periods of MVFR in passing showers, especially for PHTO and PHLI terminals. Cloud build ups over Lanai are likely to create prolonged periods of MVFR cigs at PHNY into the early afternoon.
