BASED ON DATA THROUGH 1200 UTC MAY 05 2016

AT 200 AM HST...SATELLITE IMAGERY SHOWED THE LEADING EDGE OF A 200
TO 300 MILE-WIDE CLOUD BAND ASSOCIATED WITH A COLD FRONT EXTENDING
SOUTHWEST FROM 30N 165W TO THE DATE LINE AROUND 24N. THIS BAND WAS
ADVANCING TOWARD THE EAST AROUND 10 TO 20 MPH. MOSTLY LOW-TOPPED
CUMULUS CLOUDS MADE UP THIS BAND WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A FEW
TOWERING CUMULUS CLOUDS ALONG THE LEADING EDGE WHERE TOPS EXTENDED
TO AROUND 15 TO 20 THOUSAND FEET.

BROKEN TO OVERCAST LOW CLOUDS WERE IMPACTING KAUAI AND
NIIHAU...INCLUDING THEIR SURROUNDING WATERS. MUCH OF THE CLOUD
COVERAGE THAT WAS IMPACTING OAHU AND MAUI COUNTY EARLIER HAD PUSHED
WEST OF THE ISLANDS...LEAVING MOSTLY CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY
CONDITIONS. BROKEN LAYERED CLOUDS WERE SHOWN OVER THE BIG ISLAND DUE
TO A COMBINATION OF SCATTERED LOW CLOUDS MOVING THROUGH AND BROKEN
UPPER CLOUDS LIFTING NORTHEAST.

A LINGERING CLOUD BAND WAS SHOWN EXTENDING WEST FROM AROUND 18N 140W
TO THE BIG ISLAND. THIS BAND WAS NEARLY STATIONARY WITH A SLIGHT
DRIFT TOWARD THE SOUTH. CLOUD TOPS WERE LIMITED TO 12 THOUSAND FEET
OR LESS.
