Issued: Nov 27, 2014 8:30 AM HST

Based on data through 8:00 am Nov 27 2014 HST

There are several northeast through southwest oriented bands of rather stable looking low clouds in the vicinity of the main Hawaiian islands. The first band lies just to the east of the Big Island with most of its clouds are moving by to there south and east. A second band lies just to the north and northeast of the state but is showing signs of dissipating. A third band associated with a weak cold front is seen sagging slowly toward the south with its leading edge located about 150 miles north of Kauai.

Patches of low clouds are seen just upwind of the state which are moving generally moving off toward the west southwest. This is causing for most cloud coverage over the islands to be confined to north and northeast facing slopes. Over Kauai low clouds are banked up over the northern and eastern slopes with just a few clouds seen elsewhere. Over Oahu low clouds are banked up over the slopes and summits of both the Koolau and Waianae mountain ranges with scattered low clouds being blown over to leeward areas at times. Over Maui low clouds are banked up over the northern and eastern slopes of Haleakala as well as over the slopes and summits of the west Maui mountains. Over the Big Island low clouds are banked up over the windward slopes from north Kohala southward through the Hilo and Puna districts.

Isolated thunderstorms are seen along the ITCZ far south of the state. Some high cirrus clouds are streaming off toward the west which is blow off from the deep convection. Most of these high clouds remain south of the state with a few thin cloud elements moving across the Big Island at times.
