More sunshine is in the forecast as the cold front that brought heavy rain and thunderstorms to the state dissipates near the Big Island. There may be just a few remnant showers mainly near the Big Island and Maui. Weather should remain on the dry side until Tuesday, when a weaker front is forecast to start moving through the islands from the northwest. Winds will remain from the southwest as this front approaches.
A High Surf Advisory is in effect today for the west shores of the Big Island. Elsewhere, surf has fallen below advisory levels but north shores could still have 8-12 foot waves, with west shores at 5-8 feet. A warning level swell could bring 20-30 foot waves to the north shores Monday night. For mariners, a Small Craft Advisory is posted for waters around Maui County and the Big Island.
