Issued: Nov 24, 2015 8:30 AM HST

Based on data through 8:00 am Nov 24 2015 HST

A fairly weak front northeast of the state extended down through 30°N 149°W to 25°N 152°W. From there it continued southwest toward the islands in a rather diffuse, dissipating state. This frontal remnant extending southwest and straddling the state was nearly indiscernible due to its fragmented state and was being greatly obscured by a swath of cirrus clouds flowing over it.

Isolated thunderstorms were forming along the front north of 27°N. Down around the islands, a swath of broken to overcast low and high clouds were within 300 miles east and west of a line from 23°N 156°W to 15°N 160°W. The high level cirrus clouds in this swath were flowing northeastward.

Patchy low clouds seen just near the Big Island just southeast of the large cloud swath were moving west or just slightly toward the west northwest. Those low clouds just north of Kauai were moving southeastward.

At 8 am, the northwestern two thirds of the Big Island was mostly sunny. The rest of the state was cloudy to mostly cloudy.
