Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 0430 UTC December 22 2014.
Posted: December 22, 2014, 5:00 am

Most areas around the island chain this early evening are clear to partly cloudy. However, low ceilings have been persisting over the mountain slopes in Kau, Kona, and south Kohala on the Big Island, and upslope from Hilo. Low level flow is changing across the aloha state as a front is just west of Kauai as of bulletin time. Low clouds are moving from the northwest to north near 20 mph around Kauai, and are flowing from the northwest near 10 mph over Oahu. And the lower winds appear to be light and variable in the vicinity of Maui county and the Big Island.

The front just west of Kauai is generating showery low ceilings southwest clockwise through north of the isle. Skies are predominantly clear elsewhere over the adjacent coastal waters.

The leading edge of broken to overcast low clouds associated with the front is currently along a line from 30°N 153°W to 24.5°N 156.5°W to just west of Kauai to 18°N 170°W to 15.5°N 180°, and has been heading southeast near 20 mph near Kauai. Its back edge is along a line from 30°N 157°W to 24.5°N 160°W to 20°N 170°W to 18°N 180°.

Unorganized convection is occurring along the intertropical convergence zone far south of Hawaii. Most of the showers and thunderstorms have been firing from 07°N to 10°N east of 162°W. More activity has been igniting from 01.5°N to 05.5°N between 166°W and 178°W.
