High pressure north-northeast of the state will keep a moderate to breezy trade wind flow in place through Wednesday. Some MVFR cigs/vsbys will be possible in windward and mauka areas overnight through mid morning Wednesday, with PHTO, PHMK and PHLI the most likely TAF sites to see conditions drop below VFR levels. Otherwise, prevailing VFR conditions are expected through 06Z Thursday.

AIRMET Tango remains in effect for low level turbulence over and downwind of the terrain of all islands. The AIRMET will likely remain in effect through Wednesday.

AIRMET Sierra may be needed for mountain obscuration across windward sections of some islands later tonight.
