The heavy rain that was soaking Kauai this morning has eased up, prompting weather officials to cancel a flood advisory for the Garden Isle.
Weather radar at 10:40 a.m. showed the heavy rain had given way to light to moderate rain. However, runoff will persist for the next few hours, according to the National Weather Service.
A high surf warning remains in effect for the north and east shores of all islands.
Surf up to 20 to 25 along affected shores is expected. The warning is in effect through 6 p.m. today.
“Inexperienced persons should remain off beaches and adjacent beachfront areas,” the National Weather Service said in a bulletin. “Large breaking surf, significant shorebreak, and dangerous currents make entering the water very hazardous.”
