AIRMET Tango is in effect through this evening for tempo moderate turbulence leeward of all islands due to fresh to strong trade winds. Trade winds are expected to weaken later tonight into Saturday morning, and we may cancel this AIRMET sometime tonight.

AIRMET Sierra is in effect for tempo mountain obscuration across windward sections of Kauai, Oahu, Molokai and Lanai through 10Z tonight. This is due to passing clouds and showers associated with a weakening front pushing onto these islands with the trade wind flow. AIRMET Sierra may continue tonight for some windward sections beyond 10Z.

No other AIRMETs are anticipated at this time.
