Rain and big surf dominate Sunday's weather

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Showers are expected to persist over much of Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii Monday as a cold front slowly moves eastward, while surf will remain at warning levels for north and west facing shores of the islands.

The front was over the Big Island Sunday evening, according to the National Weather Service. The system brought widespread rain but no flooding. There could be a slight chance of heavy showers Sunday night, again mainly for Maui and the Big Island.

More typical weather should move in with the return of trade winds on Tuesday. However, another cold front could come through the state late in the week.

Meanwhile, a High Surf Warning has been extended until 6 p.m. Monday for north and west shores of Niihau, Kauai, Oahu and Molokai, the north shore of Maui and the west shore of the Big Island. Surf is still expected in the 20 to 30 foot face range for north facing shores, and 18 to 22 feet for west shores. Surf for the west shores of the Big Island are expected to top 10 to 15 feet.
