Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 1800 UTC July 25 2014.
Posted: July 25, 2014, 6:30 pm

Today's first visible sector images revealed scattered to broken low clouds over Kauai and the slopes of the Koolau range on Oahu. Leeward sections of Oahu had few to scattered low clouds. Maui county had broken low clouds over the east half of Molokai, the upper west Maui slopes and the windward slopes of Haleakala from Paia to Hana. Other areas of Maui county were mostly clear. Over the Big Island, broken to overcast low clouds covered the eastern slopes from Laupahoehoe to Volcano, the Kona slopes from keahole to Honaunau, and the windward Kohala slopes. The rest of the Big Island was mainly cloud-free.

Over the coastal and offshore waters, low clouds embedded within the trade winds were moving westward at about 15 to 20 miles per hour. Coverage was scattered to broken with radar data showing scattered light showers falling from these clouds. The low clouds north of Kauai and Oahu had more showery elements versus the more stable appearance of the clouds northeast of Maui county and east of the Big Island.

Water vapor images showed an upper level trough with an axis along a line from 30°N 165°W through 20°N 180. A subtropical jet stream associated with this trough had southwesterly winds of 55 to 75 miles per hour along a line from 18°N 170°W to 26°N 160°W. Isolated towering cumuli and an occasional cumulonimbus have been forming beneath the trough north of 26°N between 164°W and 172°W.

Elsewhere, the ITCZ remains active north of 10°N to the east of 160°W. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center is monitoring a tropical disturbance about 850 miles southeast of the Big Island for signs of development. The disturbance has been producing widely scattered thunderstorms south of 13°N and east of 151°W.
