Description I. Three significant Hawaiian rainstorms were analyzed using conventional meteorological data and photographs from Synchronous Meteorological Satellite (SMS-2). The impact of the satellite on analysis and forecasting was evaluated. Gridding inaccuracies and the distinctive nature of Hawaiian rains limit the impact of the satellite to the scale of synoptic analysis. The storms studied illustrate the range of Hawaiian flood producing systems and the limitations of the detection network. The...
