Get your umbrellas out as wetter weather is forecast for the next several days.

Showers will be increasing over the islands from east to west Saturday into Sunday as an area of  moisture east of the Big Island moves in. While downpours aren't expected, the showers could be persistent windward and mauka, while moderate to breezy trade winds will push some of those showers leeward.

The weather could become even wetter Sunday and into much of next week as upper level disturbances near the state combine with abundant moisture from former tropical cyclone Ulika. Locally heavy rain may become possible along with a slight chance of thunderstorms from Monday into the middle of the week.

A Small Craft Advisory remains posted until 6 p.m. Saturday for the usual windier waters around Maui County and the Big Island. Surf will remain well below advisory levels with rough and choppy waves for east shores.
