A flood watch and warnings for Kauai were dropped Sunday morning as the storm moved east, away from the Garden Island.

Forecasters also allowed a severe thunderstorm watch and a flood warning or Oahu expire early Sunday afternoon.

In the 24-hour period ending at 2 p.m., the storm dropped 5.4 inches on Makaha Ridge on Kauai and more than 4 inches fell on Waimea Heights and Mana. Nearly 4 inches was recorded at Kokee.

On Oahu, 4.2 inches fell at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Ewa Beach. About 2.8 inches fell in Poamoho and Palisades; and about 2.7 inches was recorded in Waiawa and Waipio.

The forecast for Honolulu still calls for a 50 to 70 percent chance of rain Sunday night and Monday.

Trade winds may return by Tuesday.
