A storm system moving east across the islands is expected to dissipate over Maui County.

The band of showers, some with rain rates of 1 to 2 inches, is making its way east across the state and will continue to bring rain to Maui County tonight.

Earlier in the day, Oahu and Molokai were under flash flood advisories.

Forecasters expect cool temperatures and drier conditions tonight for Oahu and other areas after the band of showers passes.

On Oahu, the heaviest rain was recorded at Palehua above Makakilo and at Schofield, where 1.7 inches fell. Wheeler recorded a little less than 1.6 inches of rain, while about 1.4 inches fell in Moanalua.

A high surf advisory also remains in effect for east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Hawaii island and Molokai through 6 p.m. Wednesday.

High surf and dangerous rip currents generated by the surf closed Hanauma Bay for a third day today.

Starting at 6 p.m. tonight, National Weather Service forecasters say a northwest swell will build to advisory level surf of 10 to 15 feet. A high surf advisory for north shores is also expected to last until 6 p.m. Wednesday.
