Issued: Nov 28, 2014 2:30 PM HST

Based on data through 2:00 pm Nov 28 2014 HST

High pressure far north of Hawaii near 28°N 160°W remains sandwiched between two low pressures, one approaching the dateline in the west Pacific and the other in the east Pacific. The east Pacific low has some trailing, remnant frontal boundaries that stretch southwest near Hawaii. Broken low clouds between the high and the east pac low are moving south between 140°W and 150°W from 30°N to 25°N. The rest of the area to 175°W between 30°N and 20°N has overcast to broken low clouds moving west at 20 to 30 mph. Between 20°N and 10°N, scattered low clouds are moving west at 20 to 30 mph. Near the dateline north of 20°N, low cloud motion turns to the northwest ahead of the west pac low and an associated cold front. The cold front is producing a line of thunderstorms that is approaching the dateline at 30 mph.

Near Hawaii, one of the aforementioned remnant frontal boundaries is bringing showers and cloudy skies just south of the Big Island over the coastal waters. More stable low clouds are bringing cloudy skies to windward coastal waters and windward island areas. Leeward locations and leeward waters have partly cloudy skies.

In the deep tropics, isolated thunderstorms are firing cloud tops to 50 thousand feet between 150°W to 160°W from 5°N to 10°N.
