Moderate trade winds will persist through tonight. Low clouds and showers carried by the trade winds will remain concentrated over windward and mountain areas of the state. This will likely produce brief periods of MVFR conditions along windward sections. A few light showers may be carried over to leeward sections of some of the smaller islands this morning, but VFR conditions are expected to prevail there.

AIRMET Sierra remains in effect for mountain obscuration on Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, and Maui. This AIRMET may be continued for windward Kauai beyond 6 AM HST this morning, but conditions appear to be improving across the other islands.
