Southerly flow associated with a cold front moving across the state is bringing steady showers to all islands this morning.

The heaviest weather has been on Maui. A Flood Advisory is posted for that island until 6:45 a.m. It could be extended and/or expanded.

Kauai and Oahu should see some improvement by this afternoon and possibly a little sunshine.

Meanwhile the Big Island should prepare for heavier showers.

Surf is down from yesterday along country shorelines. A series of small NW swells are expected through the weekend. The next advisory-sized NW swell is expected next Wednesday.

Waves today will be 7-10 feet north, 4-7 feet west, 2-4 feet east, 2 feet or less south.

Flood Advisory for Maui Island until 6:45am. Drivers should use caution due to difficult visibility and ponding on roadways.

Flash Flood Watch through this afternoon for Maui Island and the Island of Hawaii.
