Forecast: Improved conditions, but still a chance of heavy showers

Instability aloft and plentiful moisture could combine to create heavy showers again today. The chances are slim, but it's important to stay alert, particularly for Maui County and the Island of Hawaii.

Most of us will experience cool temperatures, breezy northeasterly winds, occasional showers, even some sunshine. The high in Honolulu will be 77 degrees with winds at 15-25 mph.

Another 2"-5" of snow and hurricane force winds are forecast for Big Island summits.

Surf is slightly smaller along north shores but still dangerously big. Waves today will be 14-18 feet north, 4-5 feet east, 5-8 feet west, 3 feet or less south.

A series of north swells are forecast over the next week. The one expected Tuesday night and Wednesday has the potential to trigger a High Surf Warning.

Winter Storm Warning for Big Island Summits.

High Wind Warning for Big Island Summits. Winds are 65-75 mph with gusts to 110 mph.

High Surf Advisory for north and east shores.
