A northwest to southeast oriented band of low clouds is found near and over the Hawaiian islands at 8 am. Thin patches of high clouds are passing over the islands from time to time, but are not sufficient enough to block other clouds. Scattered to broken low clouds are over Kauai and Oahu. Meanwhile, few to scattered low clouds are found over the islands of Maui county. Low clouds remain plentiful over the east facing slopes of the Big Island. Clouds over the remaining slopes began to dissipate by midnight, leaving just a few pockets of clouds over the slopes from South Point to Kona to Upolu Point.

A trough of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles south-
southeast of the Gulf of Tehuantepec continues to produce
disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Environmental conditions
are not expected to be favorable for tropical cyclone formation
during the next couple of days. However, these conditions are
forecast to become more conducive for development of this system
after that time while the low drifts generally northward.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...low...near 0 percent.
