Forecast: Some parts of Hawaii may continue to see heavy showers

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A weakening surface front will linger northwest of the state today, then slowly edge near the islands and dissipate in the next few days. This will keep winds light over the area through the rest of the week.

Some heavy showers as well as a slight chance of thunderstorms are possible this morning as well as over the Big Island this afternoon and evening as an upper level disturbance exits the state east.

No marine warnings or advisories in effect now and none is expected for the rest of the week, with winds and swell staying below small craft advisory levels.

Surf-wise, small surf, perhaps the smallest this season, will have a small bump arriving Thursday. This swell will be followed by a slightly large northwest swell on Saturday and Saturday night with surf maxing out at 10 feet along Oahu's north shore. A gradual decline will follow on Sunday.

Wave watch model is suggesting a very large northwest coming in Tuesday night with warning-level surf. A small background swell from the south will persist throughout the forecast period.

No weather or marine warnings are in effect.
