Hurricane Ignacio is located roughly 1100 miles east-southeast of Hilo. Cumulonimbus clouds associated with Ignacio are located generally south of 15°N and east of 143°W. Cloud tops extend up to 57000 ft. These clouds are moving to the west at 10 mph. Additional patchy cirrus clouds are located farther from the center, generally south of a line from 22°N 140°W to 18°N 149°W.

Tropical storm Kilo is located roughly 650 miles west-southwest of Lihue, or about 100 miles northwest of Johnston atoll. Cumulonimbus clouds associated with Kilo are located generally from 14°N to 19°N between 166°W and 171°W. Cloud tops extend up to 54000 ft. Additional isolated towering cumulus and cumulonimbus clouds are located elsewhere south of 20°N between 163°W and 173°W. Cloud tops in this area extend up to 44000 ft.

A separate area of cumulonimbus clouds is located between Ignacio and Kilo, associated with a weak low pressure system about 500 miles south of Hilo. These convective clouds are disorganized, and located within 300 miles southeast of a line from 16°N 147°W to 12°N 161°W. Cloud tops in this area extend up to 52000 ft.

One more area of cumulonimbus clouds is located along a surface trough east of Midway atoll. These convective clouds are located generally north of 25°N between 169°W and 174°W. Cloud tops in this area extend up to 50000 ft. Patch cirrus and cirrostratus clouds are also located across the western half of the area, and are debris clouds associated with these thunderstorms as well as the thunderstorms associated with tropical storm Kilo to the south.

Across the main Hawaiian islands, a broken band of showery low clouds is located near kauai/oahu, and extends offshore to the northeast of Maui county. Only scattered clouds are located over the interior of Kauai, with most of the clouds focused just offshore to the southeast. Broken low clouds cover the northeastern half of Oahu. Scattered to broken low clouds are located over interior portions of Maui county. On the Big Island, scattered to broken low clouds are located along coastal sections of north and south Kona districts, with the rest of the area mostly clear. An area of showery cumulus and towering cumulus is located well offshore to the west of the Big Island, generally between 70 miles and 200 miles west of the Kona coast. Cloud tops in this area extend to near 3000 ft.
