Tropical Depression Darby continues to move away from the islands. Southerly flow remains over Kauai and Oahu, with easterly flow found near the Big Island and Maui County.

Satellite and observations show significant improvements in clouds and showers, so have dropped AIRMET Sierra for mountain obscuration. VAD wind profile shows winds have weakened, combined with a lack of a substantial inversion, low level turbulence is not expected to be an issue. As such, AIRMET Tango has also been dropped. No AIRMETs are in effect or expected, with VFR conditions expected to prevail.
