Cloudy, wet weather to begin the new work week, and it will last for several days.

Abundant moisture moving in from the southeast and instability aloft will combine to trigger widespread and sometimes heavy showers. The Big Island is most at risk followed by Maui County. Oahu will be at the edge of the wettest weather and Kauai will get showers but may sit out the heavy stuff.

The trade winds will be breezy today at 15-20 mph with some stronger gusts.

The high in Honolulu will be 85 degrees.

The stronger winds are kicking up east shores and the wave heights there are approaching advisory levels. Waves are smaller elsewhere. An advisory-sized swell is expected along north shores this coming weekend.

Flash Flood Watch for the Big Island through Tuesday afternoon.

Small Craft Advisory for all waters through 6:00 p.m.
