JUST EAST OF KAUAI IS STILL THERE...WHICH EXTENDED NORTH THROUGH
30N152W. ISOLATED TOWERING CUMULUS CLOUDS LOCATED AT THE NORTHERN
PORTION OF THE FRONT...MARK THE LOCATION OF THE FRONT. THE FRONT

FRONT IS MOVING VERY SLOWLY EASTWARD.

THE SECOND FRONT IS ROUGHLY 75 MILES WEST OF THE FIRST FRONT WITH

THE FRONT WEST OF 170W IS NEARLY STATIONARY...THE REST OF THE FRONT

CLOUD ON SATELLITE.

THE LOW CLOUD PICTURE OVER THE ISLANDS HAS A LARGE STATIONARY
PATCH WITH A FEW EMBEDDED SHOWERS EXTENDING FROM OAHU TO KAUAI
COUNTY...AND RELATIVELY CLEAR SKIES ELSEWHERE. A SOUTHERLY WIND
FLOW HAS BROUGHT A FEW SHOWERS TO OAHU...WHILE A FEW SHOWERS ARE
DETECTED SOUTH OF KAUAI MOVING NORTHWARD. WIDELY SCATTERED LOW
CLOUDS ARE NOTED OVER THE WATERS TO THE SOUTH OF LANAI...AND OFF THE
KONA COAST AND SOUTH POINT. CLEAR SKIES CONTROLLED THE WATERS UP
TO 120 MILES NORTHEAST AND EAST OF THE BIG ISLAND. AN EXTENSIVE AREA
OF STABLE STRATOCUMULUS COVERED THE AREA WEST OF THE SECOND FRONT.

WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A RATHER DRY AIR MASS BUT ALSO AN UPPER
LEVEL TROUGH WEST OF KAUAI WITH THE AXIS FROM 30N161W TO 26N167W
TO 20N177W. THE TROUGH IS MOVING TOWARDS THE ISLANDS.
