Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 1800 UTC April 25 2015.
Posted: April 25, 2015, 6:30 pm

Water vapor imagery shows an upper level low near 29.6°N 163.4°W, about 565 miles north northwest of Kauai at 8 am. This upper level system is associated with a surface frontal feature advancing on the main Hawaiian islands. The leading edge of the cloud band associated with the front is moving over Kauai this morning, and extends about 180 miles to the northwest. The edge of the cloud band extends along a line from 28.6°N 157.6°W to 23.2°N 158.6°W to 14.8°N 167.5°W. North of 25°N, cloud tops within the band are reaching near 38000 feet. Between 19°N and 25°N, cloud tops are around 11000 feet. South of 19°N, embedded tops are reaching near 32000 feet.

Around 4 am, a batch of low clouds moved over Oahu from the south and quickly expanded, bringing clouds to most of the island for sunrise. This batch of clouds extends to the east, and at 8 am covers most of Molokai and Lanai. These clouds are approaching the western coastline of Maui at 8 am, with most of Maui cloud free. Clouds are found along the eastern coast of Maui from keanae to Hana to Ulupalakua.

On the Big Island clouds are found over the slopes from Hakalau to Cape Kumukahi to Hawaiian ocean view estates. These clouds extend up the slopes to around 5000 feet.
