NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI
0530 UTC TUE SEP 01 2015

BASED ON DATA THROUGH 0500 UTC SEPTEMBER 01 2015

AS OF 700 PM HST...HURRICANE IGNACIO WAS LOCATED ABOUT 365 MILES
EAST OF HONOLULU...HAWAII. IGNACIO WAS TRACKING TOWARD THE NORTHWEST
12 MPH. LAYERED CLOUDS WITH EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS ASSOCIATED WERE
LOCATED BETWEEN 21N AND 30N FROM 145W TO 155W. MAXIMUM CLOUD TOPS
WERE LOCATED NEAR THE CENTER OF IGNACIO THAT EXTENDED UP TO 55 TO 60
THOUSAND FEET.

HURRICANE KILO WAS LOCATED ABOUT 415 MILES SOUTH-SOUTHWEST OF MIDWAY
ISLAND. KILO WAS TRACKING TOWARD THE NORTH-NORTHWEST AT 8 MPH.
CUMULONIMBUS CLOUDS WITH TOPS TO 55 THOUSAND FEET WERE LOCATED FROM
20N TO 27N WEST OF 175W. ADDITIONAL LAYERED CLOUDS WITH ISOLATED
EMBEDDED CUMULONIMBUS CLOUDS WERE LOCATED ELSEWHERE FROM 17N TO 28N
WEST OF 171W.

HURRICANE JIMENA WAS LOCATED JUST EAST OF THE DISCUSSION AREA NEAR
16N138W AND WAS TRACKING WEST-NORTHWEST AT 15 MPH. LAYERED CLOUDS
WERE DEPICTED BETWEEN 10N AND 20N FROM 140W TO 144W. MAXIMUM CLOUD
TOPS WERE LOCATED ALONG AND NEAR 140W FROM 12N TO 19N...WHICH
EXTENDED AS HIGH AS 45 THOUSAND FEET.

OVER THE MAIN HAWAIIAN ISLANDS...THE EVENING VISIBLE SATELLITE
IMAGERY SHOWED SCATTERED TO BROKEN LOW-LEVEL CLOUDS TRACKING
SOUTHWARD OVER THE ISLANDS. THESE CLOUDS WERE MANAGING TO SPILL OVER
TO THE LEEWARD SECTIONS OF THE ISLANDS. OVER AND AROUND KAUAI...A
FEW CUMULONIMBUS AND TOWERING CUMULUS CLOUDS WERE DEPICTED. MAXIMUM
CLOUD TOPS ASSOCIATED WITH THESE CLOUDS EXTENDED AS HIGH AS 35 TO 40
THOUSAND FEET.

SATELLITE IMAGERY ALONG WITH WEATHER RADAR SHOWS AN AREA OF CUMULUS
BASED SHOWERS...SCATTERED IN COVERAGE...MOVING THROUGH KAUAI AND THE
KAUAI CHANNEL. OAHU IS BEING GRAZED BY THIS AREA OF SHOWERS.
ELSEWHERE...WIDELY DISPERSED SHOWERS EMBEDDED IN THE TRADE WIND
FLOW...ARE AFFECTING WINDWARD MAUI AND NORTHEAST FACING SIDE OF THE
BIG ISLAND. OTHERWISE...SKIES ARE GENERALLY FAIR OVER LEEWARD
SECTIONS OF OAHU MOLOKAI MAUI AND ALL OF LANAI. AS FOR THE BIG
ISLAND...THE AFTERNOON CLOUDS HAVE LEFT THE LEEWARD SIDE OF HE
ISLAND...AND`IS NOW UNDER FAIR SKIES. THE SUMMITS ARE MOSTLY
CLEAR...THERE IS A THIN FILM OF HIGH CIRRUS CLOUDS PASSING THROUGH
THE ISLANDS FROM THE WEST NORTHWEST.

ELSEWHERE...BLOW OFF OF DENSE LAYERS TO CIRRUS CLOUDS FROM IGNACIO
EXTENDED UP TO 300 MILES TO THE NORTH OF THE CENTER BEFORE CURVING
TO THE EAST FOR AN ADDITIONAL 1000 MILES. CB TOPS ARE AROUND 52000
FEET.

ABOUT 1130 MILES EAST SOUTHEAST OF IGNACIO IS HURRICANE JIMENA.

A NORTHEAST TO SOUTHWEST ORIENTED UPPER LEVEL TROUGH LIES JUST TO
THE WEST OF MIDWAY ATOLL...LOCATED NEAR 28N177W. ISOLATED TOWERING
CUMULUS CLOUDS ARE NOTED WITHIN 60 MILES EITHER SIDE OF A LINE FROM
30N173W TO 27N175W.

ABOUT 520 MILES SOUTH OF MIDWAY IS THE CENTER OF HURRICANE KILO.
CB TOPS WITH KILO ARE ESTIMATED TO BE AROUND 55000 FEET. CIRRUS FROM
KILO IS NOW REACHING MIDWAY. BLOW OFF OF DENSE LAYERED CLOUDS FROM
KILO EXTENDED TO THE NORTH FOR 300 MILES.

DEEP CONVECTION IN THE TROPICS SOUTH OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS IS
WIDELY DISPERSED BETWEEN 12N AND 04N FROM 150W TO 165W...AND ALSO
SOUTH OF 08N WEST OF 168W. ANOTHER AREA OF CB/S IS WITHIN 30 MILES

THE THINNING OCCURRED, LEEWARD BIG ISLAND AND THE LOWER HALF OF THE
KAU DISTRICT HAD THE MOST SHOWERS OF ALL THE ISLANDS THIS AFTERNOON
