The remnant low that was once Tropical Storm Fernanda continues to pass south of the state today.

As a result, Kauai and Oahu will see cloudier skies this morning, with low clouds and some moisture over Maui and Molokai.

Hana, in East Maui, received a little over one-and-a-half inches of rain over a 24 hour period, while the Kawainui Stream on the Big Island showed about an inch of rain.  The data was detailed in hourly reports released by the National Weather Service (NWS).

On the water, forecasters with the NWS say a moderate south swell should arrive later today, and peak on Tuesday, bringing below advisory level surf to the South facing shores. Another moderate south swell is forecast to arrive by Friday, peaking overnight into Saturday.
