Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 1730 UTC July 03 2015.

Skies appear to be no worse than partly cloudy over most of the aloha state this morning, with only a few patches of scattered to broken low cloudiness here and there. Low cloud movement is from the east near 15 mph just east of the Big Island and gradually veers to the southeast to south at 15 to 20 mph moving up the chain to Kauai.

Patchy broken to scattered low clouds exist south clockwise through northwest of Oahu, including in the Kauai channel. Conditions are otherwise clear to scattered over the adjacent coastal waters.

A deteriorating front, nearly stationary, is slightly more than 200 miles northwest of Kauai as of bulletin time. Most of the narrow band of low clouds with the system are currently west of a line from 30°N 157°W to 26.5°N 160°W to 20°N 166.5°W. Another band of low clouds is west of the front and is associated with a stationary surface trough. Broken high clouds sweeping in from the northwest and north have been spilling over some of the lower cloudiness.

Convection has been active along the intertropical convergence zone far south and southeast of Hawaii. Most of the more intense elements have been located from 03°N to 10°N between 145°W and 162°W, with some cells rising to over 50 thousand feet. Elsewhere, a tropical disturbance is more than 1200 miles east-southeast of the Big Island and appears to be nearly stationary. The feature is periodically generating thunderstorms in its vicinity.
