Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 1200 UTC February 10 2016.
Posted: February 10, 2016, 12:30 pm

A cold front boundary stretched from 30.0°N 143.9°W to 25.7°N 158.9°W to 25.5°N 166.7°W to 28.9°N 180. The leading edge of the front is marked by a ragged-looking band of low and mid level clouds about 100 miles wide. The front is slowly drifting E.

A strong jet stream far N of the islands is generating broken to overcast layered clouds, covering the area N of a line from 24.4°N 140.0°W to 30.0°N 159.9°W. Highest cloud tops in these layered clouds were reaching 42 thousand feet.

Closer to the island chain, scattered low clouds lingered around the windward coastline of the Big Island while mostly clear skies prevailed across the rest of that island. For the rest of the islands, scattered low clouds prevailed with small patches of locally broken low clouds over mountain areas.

Elsewhere, broken cumulus and stratocumulus clouds cover the area N of the aforementioned cold front boundary and moving to the e/se at around 20 mph. Scattered cumulus and stratocumulus clouds prevailed between the front and 10.0°N with cloud motion generally to the w/nw at about 15 mph.

Far S of the islands, deep convection was observed along the intertropical convergence zone, or ITCZ, between 01°N to 09°N and 154°W to 180. Cloud tops ranged from 46 to 56 thousand feet.
