Moderate to locally strong trades continue across the islands this evening and will prevail through Friday. Therefore the airmet for low level turb will persist. Low clouds from a dissipating cold front have reached Kauai at this time and will spread to the rest of the smaller islands through the rest of the evening into early Friday morning. Expect an increase in SHRA and MVFR ceiling conditions for the smaller islands as the night progresses. There may even be enough low clouds to warrant an airmet for mountain obscuration for the smaller islands. Moisture at the mid and upper levels associated with a trough has spread over the southern islands and brought light icing to those area, as reported by an aircraft earlier. Expect the moisture to dissipate overnight and thus the condition will end.
