Based on data through 0000 UTC April 30 2016.
Posted: April 30, 2016, 12:30 am

Water vapor imagery indicates a broad trough of low pressure northwest through north of the Hawaiian islands with a ridge of high pressure to the northeast. Below the trough a cold front is located along a line from 30°N 165°W to 26°N 180°W. The cold front is moving to the east-southeast around 20 miles per hour. Layer clouds are located along and to the northwest of the front with scattered cirrus clouds extending 500 miles ahead of the front. There are even some cirrus clouds within 200 miles of a line from 30°N 151°W to Oahu, about 22°N 158°W. South of 17°N a few thin scattered cirrus clouds have been advected from near the equator into the area.

In the lower to mid levels areas of scattered to broken stratocumulus and cumulus clouds are across the region. They are rising to heights between 9 and 12 thousand feet and moving to the east-northeast at 15 to 20 miles per hour.

In the vicinity of the main Hawaiian islands, Niihau is partly cloudy. Kauai, Oahu, Molokai and Lanai are mostly cloudy. Maui is mostly cloudy, except for the south facing beaches where it is mostly sunny. Kahoolawe is mostly sunny. Over the Big Island it is mostly cloudy, except party sunny over the Puna and eastern Kau districts.
