Strong sustained north to northeasterly winds to around 30 mph gust up to 50 mph will develop after the front passes each island.
Added instability from an upper level disturbance west of the front will add to the rainfall production.
High pressure building in north of the island chain will bring trade winds back into the state by Tuesday, pushing the diminishing frontal band back towards the western islands with another round of widespread rainfall returning to Molokai, Oahu and Kauai.
