BASED ON DATA THROUGH 1200 UTC AUGUST 28 2014

WATER VAPOR IMAGES SHOWED A BROAD AREA OF LOW PRESSURE IN THE MIDDLE
ATMOSPHERE TO THE WEST-NORTHWEST OF THE MAIN HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
THUNDERSTORMS AND TOWERING CUMULI DEVELOPED UNDER THIS FEATURE
WITHIN 90 MILES OF THE CURVE FROM 30N 167W TO 26N 167W TO 24N 172W
TO 27N 180.

TO THE NORTHEAST THROUGH EAST...FRAGMENTING LOW TO MIDDLE CLOUD
LAYERS ACCOMPANYING A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE MOSTLY OBSCURED LOWER
FEATURES WITHIN 250 MILES OF THE LINE FROM 30N 149W TO 20N 146W.

TO THE SOUTHWEST...MIDDLE TO HIGH LAYERED DEBRIS CLOUDS FROM
THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WITH A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE NEAR THE
DATELINE MOSTLY TO PARTLY OBSCURED LOWER FEATURES WEST OF THE CURVE
FROM 21N 180 TO 18N 175W TO 14N 177W TO 12N 180.

TO THE SOUTH...MODERATE TO STRONG THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY CONTINUED
IN THE ITCZ FROM 11N TO 01N...ESPECIALLY WEST OF 159W. LAYERED
MIDDLE TO HIGH DEBRIS CLOUDS FROM THIS AND EARLIER CONVECTION MOSTLY
TO PARTLY OBSCURED LOWER FEATURES WITHIN 300 MILES OF THE CURVE FROM
09N 140W TO 07N 151W TO 08N 159W TO 04N 180.

OTHERWISE...CLOUD COVER ACROSS HAWAIIAN WATERS CONSISTED MAINLY OF
MARINE STRATOCUMULI AND CUMULI ORGANIZED INTO LOOSE CLUMPS AND BANDS
UP TO ABOUT 600 MILES LONG AND 200 MILES WIDE. THESE CLOUDS WERE
GREATEST IN AREAL COVERAGE WITHIN THE AREA BOUNDED BY THE CURVE FROM
24N 164W TO 18N 156W TO 16N 166W TO 19N 169W. THEY GENERALLY MOVED
TOWARD THE WEST SOUTHWEST AT AROUND 15 MILES AN HOUR...AND ROSE TO
HEIGHTS OF 8000 TO 10000 FEET...THOUGH TALLER CUMULI APPROACHED
15000 FEET.

ACROSS THE MAIN HAWAIIAN ISLANDS...CLOUD COVER CONSISTED MOSTLY OF
MARINE CUMULI AND STRATOCUMULI MOVING ASHORE ALONG SLOPES FACING
NORTH THROUGH EAST. LAYERED DEBRIS CLOUDS FROM AFTERNOON CUMULUS
BUILDUPS ON WEDNESDAY LARGELY HAD DISSIPATED OR MOVED OFFSHORE.
RADAR DATA FROM NEAR THE ISLANDS SHOWED SCATTERED SHOWERS OFFSHORE
TO THE NORTH OF OAHU...MOLOKAI...AND MAUI...AND SCATTERED SHOWERS
WELL OFFSHORE IN THE LEE PLUME TO THE WEST OF THE BIG ISLAND...BUT
ISOLATED SHOWERS AT MOST ELSEWHERE.
