Wind shear over the state has diminished, as the sharp upper level trough over us begins to weaken with the approach of a larger trough from the northwest. Turbulence guidance fields show a strong weakening trend between this morning and this afternoon, and recent pilot reports indicate nil or light turbulence along the trough axis. With this in mind, will drop the airmet for moderate turbulence that was already scheduled to end by 04Z this evening.

Otherwise primarily VFR conditions are expected. Brief MVFR ceilings are possible in showers across eastern sections of the islands. Weakening winds tonight will allow land breezes to form across leeward sections, which will help to clear out any lingering low-level clouds that developed over these areas during the day.
