Flood advisory canceled, but rain still in forecast

The National Weather Service lifted a flood advisory for Oahu that had been in effect this morning, but the potential for showers continues today.

A cold front has stalled over Oahu and is dissipating, said Tom Birchard, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

"There's still some showers developing," he said.

Birchard said he expects today's weather on Oahu to be a mixture of clouds, rain and sunshine with variable winds. Some of the rain may also reach Maui County.

Heavy showers hit Oahu overnight and into the morning, dumping about 2.5 inches at Makaha Stream, 1.8 inches on Schofield Barracks, and 1.5 inches on Waianae Valley as of 8 a.m., according to the weather service.

Tomorrow's weather should be a little more sunny and tradewinds are forecast to return. But Birchard said remnants of the cold front could bring scattered showers, especially in windward and mauka areas.

He said most of the rain associated with the cold front should be north of the islands tomorrow, but more rain is forecast for Sunday and Monday.

Another weather system west of the islands is expected to bring southerly winds and vog during the early part of next week.

Birchard said the winds will create voggy, but dry conditions starting Tuesday.
