Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Hawaiian Islands Satellite Interpretation Message

Based on data through 1200 UTC October 01 2014.
Posted: October 1, 2014, 12:30 pm

Infrared satellite data shows a large trough trekking E across the central Pacific, far NW of the main Hawaiian islands, and pushing a sfc frontal boundary into the area. The leading edge of the front is marked by a 200-mile wide band of stratocumulus and layered clouds with embedded thunderstorms, extending from 30.0°N 158.2°W to 25.0°N 163.9°W. The front is migrating SE at around 20 mph. Associated broken layered clouds cover the area N of 25°N from 160°W to 180, with highest cloud tops around 42 thousand feet.

On the Big Island, manly scattered low clouds prevail with scattered high cirrus clouds streaming from the WSW across the S half of the Big Island. On Maui county, scattered to locally broken low clouds with a few showers are moving across windward areas from hamoa to huelo. Patches of broken low clouds linger over the W Maui mountains and central Molokai. On Oahu, broken low clouds with scattered showers are developing along the Koolau mountains and the windward coastline from kahaluu to Kahuku. Scattered to locally broken low clouds and a few showers linger over the Waianae range. On Kauai county, mainly scattered low clouds prevail except for small cells of broken low clouds and brief showers moving from the E and into the windward coastline from Lihue to Anahola.

Elsewhere, scattered to broken cumulus and stratocumulus clouds cover the area N of 10°N from 140°W to 160°W. Latest water vapor satellite imagery depicts a weakening closed upper low about 270 miles NE of Maui.

Far S of the island chain, a very active intertropical convergence zone, or ITCZ, is showing deep convection and mainly broken to overcast layered clouds along most of the area S of 15°N. A large cluster of active thunderstorms is centered around 10°N 148°W, or about 840 miles SE of the Big Island, with highest cloud tops reaching 52 thousand feet.
