Moderate to breezy trades to continue today with increased shower activity as the day progresses. This is due to a batch of showery low clouds upstream of the central islands. Expect some MVFR conditions with these clouds and showers, otherwise VFR expected to prevail.

Airmet sierra was recently discontinued as clouds had not materialized over the smaller islands. It may need to be re-issued later this morning or early this afternoon if the clouds approaching the central islands from the northeast build up over the islands.

Airmet tango continues for mechanical turbulence to the lee of the mountains. Expect these conditions to continue through at least tonight with the moderate to breezy trade winds.
