High pressure north of the state will keep a windy trade wind flow in place through tonight. Showers will favor windward and mauka areas, but the strong trades will periodically allow some showers to move into leeward locations as well. Temporary MVFR cigs/vsbys will be possible in windward areas as shower bands move through. Otherwise, predominantly VFR conditions are expected.

AIRMET Sierra is in effect for mountain obscuration across Kauai Oahu Molokai Maui and the Big Island. Conditions should improve later this morning in most areas.

AIRMET Tango is in effect for moderate low level turbulence over and downwind of the mountains across all islands. Conditions are expected to continue through the weekend.
