High pressure north of the state will keep a moderate to breezy trade wind flow in place through tonight, with clouds and showers focused primarily across windward and mauka areas. Mainly VFR conditions are expected at the terminals, but brief MVFR cigs/vsbys may impact PHLI and PHTO in passing SHRA.

Airmet tango remains in effect for low level turbulence over and south thru west of the mountains on all islands. These conditions are expected to remain in place through the day.

Airmet sierra is in effect for north thru east sections of Kauai due to mountain obscuration. The airmet may need to be expanded to include other islands later this morning.
