Winds have already begun increasing and veering to a more southerly direction this afternoon nearly everywhere, except the Big Island, as a front approaches the islands from the northwest.

Ridging over the area will keep the atmosphere dry and stable with VFR conditions prevailing through this evening. Cloud cover and shower chances will increase overnight, especially over Kauai, as stability decreases ahead of the approaching front.

No AIRMETs are in effect, nor expected through tonight.
