Flood advisories have been posted for the Hana side of the island through the night and into early this morning. High moisture and unstable conditions mean the unsettled weather pattern will continue today, with the potential for locally heavy rainfall on Maui and the Big Island. A drier and more stable trade wind weather regime is expected to gradually become established across the Aloha State by late Thursday, and will continue into early next week. A disturbance forecast to pass south of the islands early next week could boost trade wind speeds.
