Across the main Hawaiian islands, broken low clouds cover the interior and leeward sections of Kauai and Niihau. Broken low clouds also cover the Waianae range on Oahu, and windward slopes of the Koolau range. An area of mid-level clouds covers most of Maui county, and extends 60 miles offshore to the north. In addition to the mid clouds, broken low clouds cover northeast Molokai and interior sections from Kaunakakai westward. Broken low clouds cover the interior and leeward sections of Lanai. Broken to overcast low clouds cover the west Maui mountains, and lower slopes of Haleakala below 8000 ft. These clouds are greatest from Ulupalakua to Pukalani to Hana and Kipahulu.

On the Big Island, broken to overcast low clouds cover much of the lower slopes. These clouds are greatest along the windward coast north of Hilo town, and along the Kona slopes south of Keahole Point. Coastal sections of southern Puna and Kau districts and leeward portions of north and south Kohala districts are mostly clear. The clouds are generally located below 9000 ft, but extend up to 12000 ft along north and northwest slopes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa.

An area of overcast showery low and mid level layered clouds is located over the eastern coastal and offshore waters. These clouds are greatest in coverage in the area from 60 miles east of Hilo to 200 miles east of Hilo. The western edge has been thinning over the past several hours, with a smaller band up to 20 miles wide located just offshore to the east of the Big Island. Based on cloud top temperatures, cloud heights extend up to 18000 ft. This area of clouds is moving to the west at 10 mph.

South of the state, isolated cumulonimbus clouds are located generally south of a line from 10°N 162°W to 16°N 145°W to 15°N 140°W. Cloud tops extend up to 48000 ft. Patchy cirrus clouds are also located through this area, generally south of 19°N east of 170°W.

Farther to the northwest, an area of cirrus and cirrocumulus clouds is located over and to the northwest of Midway atoll. These clouds are located north of a line from 30°N 173°W to 24°N 180°, and are moving to the southeast at 20 mph. An area of towering cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds is located just east of this area, generally north of 29°N between 169°W and 172°W. These clouds are nearly stationary, and cloud tops extend up to 34000 ft.
