Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 0000 UTC February 01 2015.
Posted: February 1, 2015, 12:30 am

A jet stream northern end of the central Pacific basin is producing layered midlevel and cirrus clouds along a line from 27°N 180° to 24°N 162°W to 30°N 149°W. The cloud band is anywhere from 200 to 600 miles wide.

At the low levels, broken stratocumulus and cumulus clouds are located north and east of a line from 30°N 140°W to 20°N 180°W. These clouds are traveling east near 30°N, but slow down and begin tracking westward near 20°N.

Elsewhere, another area of stratocumulus clouds is moving east to west across 140°W at 15 mph. These clouds are bounded to the west by points 25°N 140°W to 18°N 146°W to 16°N 140°W. Few to scattered cumulus clouds cover most of the rest of the central Pacific basin.

Far south of area in the ITCZ, a 250 mile wide band of thunderstorms follows a line from 06°N 140°W to 09°N 161°W to 05°N 174°W. Cloud tops within the ITCZ are up to 47 kft in height.

Across the main Hawaiian islands, cloudy skies prevail over most of Kauai except for breaks along the northeastern coast. On Oahu, mostly cloudy skies prevail over most of the island with breaks along southern and western shores. Lanai and Molokai are mostly cloudy while Maui is mostly cloudy with breaks in the central valley and leeward west Maui. The Big Island is mostly cloudy with breaks along the Kona coast and in the Puna area south of Hilo.
