HAWAIIAN ISLANDS SATELLITE INTERPRETATION MESSAGE
NWS CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER HONOLULU HI
1230 UTC MON JUL 28 2014

BASED ON DATA THROUGH 1200 UTC JULY 28 2014

SATELLITE LOOP SHOWS LOW CLOUDS ARE MOVING GENERALLY FROM EAST TO
WEST SOUTH OF 30N AND EAST OF 172W...INCLUDING ACROSS LOCAL HAWAIIAN
WATERS. A BROAD ANTICYCLONIC CIRCULATION...ACTUALLY A SUBTROPICAL
HIGH..IS CENTERED NEAR 38N137W AND IS THE MAIN DRIVER FOR THIS FLOW.
WATER VAPOR LOOP...SHOWING FEATURES MAINLY ABOVE 24000 FEET...SHOWS
AN UPPER LOW NEAR 29N158W. THIN AND GAPPY HIGH CLOUDS MARK THIS
UPPER LOW ALONG ITS NORTHEASTERN FLANK. THIS UPPER LOW APPEARS TO BE
MOVING EAST SOUTHEAST AT ABOUT 10 MPH.

OVERCAST LAYERED CLOUDS WEST OF A LINE FROM 50N180W TO 44N173W TO
32N175W TO 28N180W MARK A FRONTAL BOUNDARY JUST ENTERING THE CENTRAL
NORTH PACIFIC FROM THE WEST. THESE CLOUDS ARE ALMOST STATIONARY.

ISOLATED CUMULONIMBUS...CB...ARE EMBEDDED WITHIN OVERCAST LAYERED
CLOUDS NORTH OF 06N AND SOUTH OF A LINE FROM 08N175W TO 15N155W TO
12N140W. A PAIR OF WEAK SURFACE LOWS LIE WITHIN THIS AREA...ONE
NEAR 09N161W AND ANOTHER NEAR 13N145W. THIS LAST LOW IS ALL THAT IS
LEFT OF FORMER TROPICAL DEPRESSION GENEVIEVE. BOTH LOWS ARE MOVING
GENERALLY TOWARD THE WEST AT ABOUT 10 MPH.

LOW CLOUD COVERAGE HAS DECREASED SLIGHTLY SINCE LAST EVENING. LOW
CLOUDS FAVOR WINDWARD AREAS OF THE SMALLER ISLANDS...WITH BROKEN LOW
CLOUDS ACROSS THE EASTERN THIRD OF KAUAI AND ACROSS WINDWARD SHORES
AND SLOPES OF THE KOOLAU RANGE ON OAHU. MOLOKAI AND LANAI APPEAR TO
HAVE SCATTERED LOW CLOUDS TO CLEAR SKIES. WINDWARD HALEAKALA SLOPES
ON MAUI...AS WELL AS THE WEST MAUI MOUNTAINS...HAVE PATCHY BROKEN
LOW CLOUDS. HIGH CLOUDS HAVE BECOME TOO THICK IN INFRARED IMAGERY TO
SEE LOWER CLOUDS ACROSS THE BIG ISLAND. SATELLITE LOOP SHOWS LOW
CLOUDS ARE MOVING ACROSS LOCAL WATERS TOWARD THE WEST AT 15 TO 20
MPH...STRONGEST NEAR THE BIG ISLAND AND WEAKEST NEAR KAUAI.

BASED ON DATA THROUGH 0000 UTC JULY 28 2014

WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS AN UPPER LEVEL LOW CENTERED ABOUT 650
MILES TO THE NORTH OF THE STATE WITH A TROUGH AXIS EXTENDING DOWN TO
A POSITION JUST NORTHWEST OF KAUAI. SOME ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE
SEEN NEAR THE CENTER AND JUST EAST OF THE UPPER LOW. SOME HIGH
CIRRUS CLOUDS ARE ALSO SEEN STREAMING OFF TO THE NORTHEAST FROM
THUNDERSTORMS THAT WERE NORTH OF EARLY THIS MORNING.

SCATTERED TO LOCALLY BROKEN LOW CLOUDS ARE SEEN MOVING WESTWARD IN A
MODERATE TRADE WIND ENVIRONMENT WITH THE VAST MAJORITY OF THEM
LOCATED UPWIND OF THE BIG ISLAND. CLOUD COVERAGE OVER THE ISLANDS
THEMSELVES VARIED FROM ISLAND TO ISLAND. OVER KAUAI PATCHES OF LOW
CLOUDS ARE COVERING EASTERN AND INTERIOR AREAS WITH A FEW PATCHES OF
LOW CLOUDS SEEN OVER EXTREME WESTERN AREAS. OVER OAHU LOW CLOUDS ARE
COVERING THE SLOPES AND SUMMITS OF BOTH THE KOOLAU AND WAIANAE
MOUNTAIN RANGES WITH SOME SCATTERED LOW CLOUDS SEEN ELSEWHERE. A FEW
PATCHES OF LOW CLOUDS ARE SEEN OVER EASTERN AND SOUTHWESTERN MOLOKAI
AS WELL AS OVER INTERIOR AREAS OF LANAI. OVER MAUI LOW CLOUDS
ARE BANKED UP OVER PORTIONS OF THE HALEAKALA SLOPES AS WELL AS OVER
THE SLOPES AND SUMMITS OF THE WEST MAUI MOUNTAINS. OVER THE BIG
ISLAND LOW CLOUDS ARE BANKED UP OVER PORTIONS OF THE WINDWARD SLOPES
FROM NORTH KOHALA SOUTHWARD THROUGH THE HILO AND PUNA DISTRICTS.
DAYTIME HEATING HAS CAUSED LOW CLOUDS TO BUILD UP OVER PORTIONS OF
THE KONA AND KAU SLOPES.

TROPICAL DEPRESSION GENEVIEVE IS CURRENTLY LOCATED ABOUT 950
MILES EAST SOUTHEAST OF HILO...HAWAII. GENEVIEVE IS MOVING WESTWARD
AT ABOUT 15 MPH. THE NEXT ADVISORY FOR THIS SYSTEM WILL BE ISSUED BY
THE CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER IN HONOLULU BY 11 AM HST THIS
MORNING. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE TO FLARE UP EAST OF THE LOW
LEVEL CENTER.

AN ELONGATED AREA OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IS LOCATED ABOUT 800
MILES SOUTH OF HONOLULU...HAWAII. ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS MAY BE
SOMEWHAT CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THIS SYSTEM AS IT CONTINUES TO
MOVE WESTWARD AT ABOUT 10 MPH DURING THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS.
