Additional clouds have formed over the central portion of Oahu, and spread across the Waianae range. On Molokai, the clouds are focused over the eastern third of the island, with just a few clouds along the northern coast. Just a few clouds are found over Lanai this afternoon.

On Maui, clouds remain over the west Maui mountains, and over the Haleakala slopes from spreckelsville to Hana, and upslope of Kipahulu. Additional clouds have formed upslope of makena, and these clouds extend to the southwest of the island and are over Kahoolawe at 2 pm.
