Issued: Oct 30, 2014 2:30 PM HST

Based on data through 2:00 pm Oct 30 2014 HST

As of 2 pm, an approximately 130 mile-wide cloud band, associated with a weakening front, was centered along a line from near 25°N 170°W 22°N 163°W 26°N 140°W and beyond. The frontal cloud band has been moving toward the south at about 10 mph. The deep convection that was along the band this morning has dissipated, leaving mainly showery broken low clouds. The southern portion of this frontal cloud band was brushing Kauai and Oahu, bringing showery low clouds across those islands from time to time. More persistent low clouds were anchored over the higher terrain and east facing slopes of both islands as well.

A swath of high clouds, associated with an upper trough, was obscuring most of the low cloud features over Maui county. This patch of high clouds is roughly 150 miles wide and extends from near 21°N 158°W 24°N 147°W. It is pushing slowly toward the east-southeast.

On the Big Island, broken to overcast low clouds covered the Kohala mountains as well as the lower, north-and-east facing slopes of Mauna Kea. These low clouds extended south into the Hilo and Puna districts of the Big Island. Another area of broken to overcast low clouds covered the south and west facing slopes of Mauna Loa, extending from near Pahala, to Hawaiian ocean view estates, to Kailua-Kona and Puuanahulu.
