HAWAIIAN ISLANDS SATELLITE INTERPRETATION MESSAGE
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI
0030 UTC FRI JUL 25 2014

BASED ON DATA THROUGH 0000 UTC JULY 25 2014

WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS AN UPPER LEVEL LOW CENTERED SEVERAL
HUNDRED MILES TO THE WEST NORTHWEST OF KAUAI. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS
ARE SEEN NEAR THE CENTER OF THE UPPER LOW. THE UPPER LOW HAS BEEN
NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS.

LOW CLOUD COVERAGE OVER THE ISLANDS VARIED FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND BUT
FOR THE MOST PART RESEMBLES A TYPICAL TRADE WIND SCENARIO. OVER
KAUAI PATCHES OF LOW CLOUDS ARE COVERING MOST EASTERN AND INTERIOR
AREAS WITH JUST A FEW CLOUDS SEEN OVER SOME LEEWARD LOCATIONS. OVER
OAHU LOW CLOUDS ARE BANKED UP OVER THE SLOPES AND SUMMITS OF BOTH
THE KOOLAU AND WAIANAE MOUNTAIN RANGES WITH THE TRADE WINDS
SUFFICIENTLY STRONG ENOUGH TO BLOW SOME SCATTERED LOW CLOUDS OVER TO
LEEWARD AREAS AT TIMES. JUST A FEW PATCHES OF LOW CLOUDS ARE SEEN
OVER EASTERN MOLOKAI AND INTERIOR LANAI. OVER MAUI PATCHES OF LOW
CLOUDS ARE SEEN OVER THE SLOPES OF HALEAKALA AS WELL AS OVER THE
SLOPES AND SUMMITS OF THE WEST MAUI MOUNTAINS. OVER THE BIG ISLAND
LOW CLOUDS ARE BANKED UP OVER THE WINDWARD SLOPES FROM NORTH KOHALA
SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE HILO AND PUNA DISTRICT. DAYTIME HEATING HAS
CAUSED CLOUDS TO BUILD UP OVER THE KONA AND SOUTHEAST KAU SLOPES.

AN AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER CENTERED ABOUT 900 MILES SOUTHEAST OF
THE BIG ISLAND CONTINUES TO PRODUCE WIDELY SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS
ACROSS A BROAD AREA. THIS AREA OF DISTURBED WEATHER IS MOVING TOWARD
THE WEST AT 10 TO 15 MPH.
