Breezy trade winds will keep clouds and showers focused across mainly windward sections. Conditions have dried out since this morning, but occasional MVFR conditions are still expected in showers.

Radar VAD wind profiles and 00Z soundings show winds have dropped off a bit to 20 kt, but the 18Z GFS shows this as a brief lull before picking up again this evening. With the strengthening subsidence inversion, will keep the airmet going for moderate low-level turbulence. Winds are expected to strengthen further late Saturday as a new high builds north of the state, which will further increase the potential for low-level turbulence through at least Monday.
