Shra associated with an old front will continue to affect the islands tonight with at least tempo MVFR in some areas. Although cloud tops on IR imagery have warmed some, there are still some TCU out there as of mid-afternoon. Dropped sigmet sierra for TS near the phnl-ca flight routes, but keeping airmet in place for the most likely spots to see mt obsc tonight, namely n/e facing slopes from kauai-molokai. Will likely have to add windward Big Island slopes as well at some point.

Radar velocity azimuth display wind profiles show boundary layer winds remain in the 20 to 30 knot range, thus we will leave airmet for low level turb s-w of mt in place into the night.
