Water vapor imagery indicates an upper level low centered at 31°N 175°W and moving west at 15 mph. This low is embedded within a larger positively-tilted upper level trough with an axis from 34°N 171°W to 28°N 178°W to 23°N 175°W. Isolated thunderstorms are located within a 75 mile radius of both 26°N 175°W and 29°N 169°W. Cloud tops associated with these thunderstorms are up to 45 kft. Another larger area of thunderstorms are located just east of the upper trough covering an area from 20°N to 27°N and 163°W to 167°W. Cloud tops in this region are up to 50 kft in height.

A low associated with remnant tropical depression 08°E is centered at 18°N 140°W. Within a 300 mile radius of the low, broken to overcast cumulus clouds cover the area. Isolated cumulonimbus cumulus clouds with tops to 45 kft. This area of clouds is moving west at 13 mph.

Elsewhere, isolated disorganized thunderstorms with tops up to 45 kft cover an area from 10°N to 17°N and 151°W to 173°W. These thunderstorms are moving west at 10 to 15 mph.

Around the main Hawaiian islands, scattered to broken cumulus clouds cover the windward coastal waters of the main Hawaiian islands. Few to scattered cumulus clouds cover the leeward waters. On Kauai, broken low clouds cover the windward half of the island, with mostly sunny conditions leeward. On Oahu, overcast cumulus clouds cover windward slopes and the koolaus. Scattered clouds are located over the Waianae mountains. Molokai is mostly sunny except for low clouds over the eastern mountains. Lanai has a few low clouds across the northeast part of the island. On Maui, overcast skies cover windward slopes of Haleakala and the west Maui mountains, while the rest of the island is sunny. On the Big Island, broken low clouds cover the Hamakua coast and lower slopes. A few clouds are located over the south Kona area, while the rest of the area is mostly sunny.
