A weakening band of rain moved slowly over Oahu Sunday, bringing showers to parts of the island.

The front is expected to continue to bring passing showers to Oahu Sunday evening and spread to Maui County Sunday night into Monday and should dissipate Monday night and Tuesday.

The front brought up to 2 inches of rain to Kauai Saturday. In the 24-hour period ending at 11 a.m., Waialae got 2 inches; the Mohihi Crossing saw 1.7 inches and the Wailua Ditch recorded about 1.6 inches of rain.

Tradewinds should pick up after the front passes, blowing away the vog and humidity that lingered over the islands last week.

The tradewinds will also bring in some rain to windward and mauka areas, with some showers blown over to leeward areas.

Tradewinds could be breezy Monday, blowing at 15 to 25 mph, with 35 mph gusts.

Along with the wind and rain, surf is rising on north and east shores.

A high surf advisory goes into effect at 6 a.m. Monday until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Surf is expected to be 10 to 15 feet along north shores and 6 to 9 feet along east shores.
