Storm system moves over Maui; Cool, dry night for Oahu

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 05:44 p.m. HST, Jan 14, 2013

A storm system moving east across the islands is expected to dissipate over Maui County.

The band of showers, some with rain rates of 1 to 2 inches, is making its way east across the state and will continue to bring rain to Maui County tonight.

Earlier in the day, Oahu and Molokai were under flash flood advisories.

Forecasters expect cool temperatures and drier conditions tonight for Oahu and other areas after the band of showers passes.

On Oahu, the heaviest rain was recorded at Palehua above Makakilo and at Schofield, where 1.7 inches fell. Wheeler recorded a little less than 1.6 inches of rain, while about 1.4 inches fell in Moanalua.

A high surf advisory also remains in effect for east-facing shores of Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Hawaii island and Molokai through 6 p.m. Wednesday.

High surf and dangerous rip currents generated by the surf closed Hanauma Bay for a third day today.

Starting at 6 p.m. tonight, National Weather Service forecasters say a northwest swell will build to advisory level surf of 10 to 15 feet. A high surf advisory for north shores is also expected to last until 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Flooding in certain areas. Watch out if a car on the other side splashes up water from the ground onto your windshield, because u may be blinded for a second. That happened to me 15 minutes ago, driving on Kam Hwy near Sunset Beach. I am now in Waimea Bay Beach Park parked here with hardly any cars lol. On the other hand that may be a good sign, showing everyone is at work. btw if u have not checked it out, the handy dandy Breaking News app for this newspaper is really good at showing real time traffic conditions on our three interstate freeways. Green for free flow, Yellow for a little traffic and Red for bumper to bumper. The traffic conditions also pop up and knows where u r driving at the time also, like at the North Shore for me. The traffic app centers the display at the location that u r at. Omg i wish i could be alive in the year 2525 to know if man made it to Mars lol. Ttyl

Yikes!!! I sincerely hope you're okay, even though you're a troll. At least you're not in N. Dakota where your pee and doodoo will turn frozen in seconds after hitting the ground.

Sorry, I'm really confused. If the storm "dropped rain over Oahu this morning" and is moving "west", why isn't Kauai getting a flood advisory?

the writer made a mistake and put moving west when he should have said the storm is moving east. probably the writer is one of allie's dorm mates.
