SATELLITE ANALYSIS AND TRENDS...THE LATEST SATELLITE IMAGERY AND
HIGH DENSITY WIND ANALYSIS INDICATES THE PRESENCE OF SEVERAL FEATURES
THAT MAY COMBINE FOR A HEAVY RAIN EVENT OVER THE SOUTHERN PORTION OF
THE HAWAIIAN ISLAND CHAIN. SURFACE MOISTURE CONVERGENCE CENTERED OVER
THE ISLANDS AND AN AREA OF DIVERGENCE ALOFT GENERATED BY THE LEFT EXIT
REGION OF A JET STREAK PRESENTLY POSITIONED SOUTH OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
IS SET TO POSITIVELY INFLUENCE UPWARD VERTICAL VELOCITIES OVER HAWAII
AND POTENTIALLY PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL. SATELLITE DERIVED PRECIPITABLE
WATER RANGES FROM 1.2 TO 1.6 INCHES, ALTHOUGH SATELLITE IMAGERY IS NOT
IMPRESSIVE IN TERMS OF LOOKS.  HOWEVER, FLASH FLOODING CAN NOT BE RULED
OUT BASED UPON THE PRESENCE OF THE VARIOUS METEOROLOGICAL PARAMETERS IN
PLACE OVER HAWAII.
.
SHORT TERM OUTLOOK VALID 1045-1800Z...LOW CONFIDENCE FACTOR
IN SHORT TERM OUTLOOK...SHOWERS OVER THE BIG ISLAND OF HAWAII MAY BE
OCCASIONALLY AND BRIEFLY MODERATE TO HEAVY WITH SOME MINOR FLOODING
POTENTIAL.
