It is a pleasant start to your Tuesday, so far. We are tracking a weak front that is about 90 miles to our west.  This front along with an upper level disturbance will bring another round of heavy rain.  Periods of rain are likely along the front and even a few pop up thunderstorms.  This may bring nocturnal thunderstorms across the state tonight into early Wednesday.

Right now, thunderstorms are firing up off of Hawaii Island due to a pool of moisture associated with an old front.  This may bring more showers to parts of the eastern end of the state. Stay tuned.

Our sunny blue skies this morning will gradually turn more cloudy as the day goes on and the evening arrives starting from the west to the east.

There may be gusty winds along thunderstorms.  The weakening cold front will then shift through Kauai and Oahu tonight, with light to moderate northerly trades returning here, while light winds featuring land breezes remain in place across the other islands.

Let's talk surf: A large northwest swell will arrive Wednesday and peak Wednesday night. Surf heights produced by this swell will reach advisory criteria from late Wednesday through Thursday night along north and west facing shores before subsiding Friday into the weekend. A small west-northwest swell fill in early next week. Starting tonight, on the North Shore surf will rise to 15 to 20 ft.
