Flood watch canceled for Oahu and Maui County

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:08 a.m. HST, Dec 16, 2013

The National Weather Service has canceled a flood watch for Oahu and Maui County as a storm system that moved over the islands Sunday morning and afternoon weakened.

Forecasters said only scattered showers remaining over Maui County and east of Oahu just before 4 p.m..

"The threat of widespread heavy rainfall has ended," forecasters said in an advisory message.

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.

Either the Star-Advertiser staff does not believe in proof-reading and spell check or English isn't their first language. Ex. "The rains could move over Oahu laster today" and "Forecasters warn not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle or on foot."
