A band of moisture associated with a dissipating front will continue to dampen portions of Maui County and the Big Island through much of the week.

Consistent moderate to heavy showers since about 2:45 a.m. this morning have triggered an Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Windward and East Maui. That is posted until 8:45 a.m. but could be extended or expanded depending on what develops.

Drier conditions with moderate to breezy trade winds will persist over Oahu and Kauai. The trades will ease later in the week.

High today in Honolulu will be 82 degrees with gusty northeast trades at 10-20 mph.

South shore surf remains elevated but has dropped below advisory levels. The National Weather Service is forecasting 4-6 feet for town surf spots today.

Surf along north-facing shores will remain below advisory levels through the week with a mix of small, short- period northwest and north swells. A small, long-period, northwest swell is possible Friday. North shores will be 6-9 feet today, west side 3-5 feet, east 2-4 feet.
