A surface trough near the Big Island and an elongated upper level trough over islands are acting to produce unsettled weather, mainly over Maui and the Big Island. Thunderstorm activity has become more isolated, however potential remains through the night for areas of Maui and the Big Island. Cloud tops to fl350 and IFR conditions can be expected in thunderstorms. Airmet sierra for mountain obscuration remains posted for N thru E facing sections of the Big Island and Maui. Along windward areas of the the smaller islands, periods of tempo MVFR are likely.

Airmet tango is posted for moderate turb between fl250 and fl350 associated with a upper level jet moving over the islands. The layered clouds moving over with the jet are thick enough to suggested tempo light icing above 130.
