By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:59 a.m. HST, Apr 14, 2013

LIHUE  - The severe thunderstorm watch for Kauai has been cancelled, however Kauai and Niihau remain in a flash flood watch until 6:00 a.m. Sunday.

Weather impacts on the Garden Island today included:

The Kekaha landfill was closed most of the day due to lightning, but will be reopened tomorrow.  The Countys transfer stations discontinued accepting greenwaste until further notice due to the wet conditions. Depending on conditions at the various transfer stations, greenwaste may be accepted tomorrow.  

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) closed the Kalalau Trail today due to the possibility of flash flooding.  DLNR will decide on Sunday morning whether the trail will be reopened.

Current weather conditions may be found on the NWS website:

ALL-LIE should it start raining this would be an ideal opportunity for you to take your semi quarterly bath. Please use deodorant soap this time. Oh and careful not to hang around too long...they'll be looking for the source of the sewage spill.

Just like visiting the doctor. Whenever the weather people cry wolf nothing happens. Whenever a surprise downpour occurs, they say it may be happening. I have an idea. Just look up at the sky, lol.

Those that live near rivers in low lying need to take precaution. Those are areas that will be hit hardest because water travels from the heights to the low lying areas. Watch for overflowing of streams, notably the Kapalama Stream and such. However even the Kapalama Stream has a lot of capacity. The feeder streams such as those from Kam Heights that flow through residential areas can have torrential flows, with the water literally moving at 15 mph or more.
