A weak wind regime will remain in place today and tonight across the western half of the state, with daytime sea breezes and overnight land breezes expected in most areas. Across the eastern half of the state, light trade winds are expected to prevail. Some enhanced showers will result in reduced cigs/vsbys across much of Kauai early this morning. Elsewhere, predominantly VFR conditions are expected through the morning hours. Showers are expected to develop over the mountains and interior of the islands this afternoon, bringing some reduced cigs/vsbys to these areas, particularly across Kauai.

Airmet Sierra is in effect for mountain obscuration across Kauai. These conditions will likely continue through much of the day. The Airmet may need to be expanded to include some of the other islands this afternoon.
