SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...THE BLENDED TPW PRODUCT SHOWS THE
ASSOCIATED MOISTURE PLUME WITH TROPICAL STORM DARBY HAS MADE IT TO THE
BIG ISLAND WHILE HILO`S 12Z SOUNDING INDICATED AMPLE MOISTURE IS PRESENT
WITH PWATS NEARING 2.5 INCHES (2.41 INCHES). SATELLITE IMAGERY DEPICTS A
DISORGANIZED NATURE TO DARBY AT THIS TIME AS A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE APPEARS
TO BE IMPACTING DARBY`S TRACK AS IT MOVES ALONG THE SOUTHERN END OF THE
RIDGE. LATEST INFRARED IMAGERY INDICATES STRENGTHENING CONVECTION AS THE
CLOUD TOPS BECOME VERY COLD (~70) WHILE THE GLD SHOWED SOME LIGHTNING
STRIKES. THE LATEST CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER`S DISCUSSION
(15Z) PLACES DARBY AT 18.8N 153.9W, MOVING UNDER 10 MILES PER HOUR WITH
SUSTAINED WINDS JUST OVER 50 MILES PER HOUR
.
AN ANNOTATED SATELLITE GRAPHIC SHOWING THE HEAVY PRECIPITATION
THREAT AREA SHOULD BE AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET ADDRESS LISTED
BELOW IN APPROXIMATELY 10-15 MINUTES.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1835-0030Z...MEDIUM CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...ONGOING LIGHT TO MODERATE SHOWERS ARE CURRENTLY
IMPACTING THE BIG ISLAND AS DARBY APPROACHES. THE 12Z ETRAP PLACES THE
HEAVIEST RAIN FALLING AFTER 18Z, THOUGH AS THE PREVIOUS MESSAGE INDICATED,
LOCAL EFFECTS ARE NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. GIVEN THE DEEP MOISTURE AND
DARBY`S SLOW MOVEMENT, COMBINED WITH LOCAL EFFECTS FROM TERRAIN AND
UPSLOPE, 10+ INCHES IS CERTAINLY POSSIBLE FOR THE WINDWARD SLOPES OF
THE BIG ISLAND THIS AFTERNOON. LOCALIZED HIGHER AMOUNTS COULD BE POSSIBLE.
