Issued: Oct 20, 2014 8:30 AM HST


Based on data through 8:00 am Oct 20 2014 HST


Tropical storm Ana was located near 20.7°N 164.1°W, or about 250 miles west southwest of Lihue, and 315 miles southeast of French Frigate Shoals at 800 am HST. Numerous thunderstorms associated with Ana were found within 300 miles to the north through east through southeast of the storm center with tops reaching near 49000 feet. For more detailed information on Ana, please see public advisories issued under AWIPS header TCPCP5 and WMO header WTPA35 PHFO.

The clouds associated with Ana continue to blanket the Kauai channel, Kauai and Niihau and the adjacent coastal waters. Most of the clouds over these areas are high clouds that are obscuring lower clouds beneath. However radar suggests quite a few lower clouds are found just west of the garden isle. Thinner high clouds are noted on visible imagery over Oahu, with some lower clouds over the Koolau range. Just a few patches of low clouds are found over the islands of Maui county. On Molokai, the clouds are concentrated over the eastern end near Halawa Valley. On Maui, the clouds are found over the east facing slopes of the west Maui mountains, and over the east facing slopes of Haleakala near Hana. Lanai and Kahoolawe have a few low clouds over the interior of the island. On the Big Island, low clouds are found over the southeast facing slopes of the Kau district, and over the lower slopes on the west side from Milolii to the Kona village resort area.

Low clouds near the Big Island are moving in from the east between 20 and 25 mph.
