HONOLULU (KHON2) - What a day. It has been an intense 24 hours for the island of Kauai. Historic amounts of rain and as we end our weekend the threat of heavy downpours, chance of thunderstorms and windy weather continues.
Flash Flood Warning, which means flooding is imminent and dangerous, has been extended till 7:45 pm tonight. Flash Flood Advisory for the eastern portion of Hawaii Island, and a Flash Flood Watch for Ni'ihau, Kaua'i and O'ahu.
The atmosphere will gradually stabilize on Monday and Tuesday while the breezy trade winds hold through the rest of the week. The upper low will slowly fill and drift westward, bringing an increase in stability and pulling the deepest moisture west of the islands.
This will likely result in a drying trend over leeward areas of most islands, though moderate rainfall will persist over windward slopes due to the continued trade winds. High clouds associated with the low will still hang around over most areas through the fist half of the week.
While we are expecting improving conditions, we could see this feature return on Thursday - possibly bringing more rainfall to the state. We will continue to track the storm and bring you the latest.
