Low cloud ceilings are mainly affecting windward coastal, and windward-facing upslope and mauka sections on the individual isles as of bulletin time. This is especially so in Maui and on the Big Island, including the Kau district. Broken to overcast low clouds are also evident on the west- and south-facing slopes of Haleakala in east Maui, and the lower Kona slopes on the Big Island. Elsewhere conditions are predominantly clear to partly cloudy. Low cloud movement is from the northeast to north-northeast near 15 mph across the aloha state this early evening.
Scattered to broken remnant showery low cloudiness, from an old front, exists north of the islands and is moving to the southwest on the prevailing low level flow. Some of these clouds are just north of Kauai as of this writing. More scattered to broken low clouds are south and south-southwest of Kauai and Niihau. Skies are otherwise clear to scattered over the adjacent coastal waters.
A weak front is east of the islands and is nearly stationary. Most of the cloudiness with the boundary is currently west and northwest of a line from 30°N 135°W to 25°N 140°W to 19°N 150°W, with its back edge along a line from 30°N 139°W to 23°N 150°W.
Convection is unorganized along the intertropical convergence zone far south of Hawaii. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are mainly located south of 11°N east of 170°W. The most active cells have recently been firing south of 05°N between 166°W and 169°W.
