Scattered showers will continue to pass over Maui County islands and the Big Island from the south today. Expect widespread mid to high level clouds to stay over all the islands. Light winds will help promote the sea breezes this afternoon with clouds and showers favoring the central and interior areas of the island, especially on Kauai and Oahu. The Big Island will see stratiform rain with pockets of heavy downpours.
