    A bicyclist used an umbrella in Manoa. Showers over windward and mountain slopes are expected to continue into the evening.

The National Weather Service has canceled the flood advisory for Oahu issued earlier this morning.

At 10:13 a.m., NWS canceled the advisory that was originally in effect until 11 a.m., saying the radar showed the heavy rain has ended.

At 8 a.m., radar indicated heavy rain along the Koolau Mountains from Hawaii Kai to Waimanalo with rain falling at a rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour for areas stretching from Waimanalo to Wahiawa and Kalihi.

Forecasters, meanwhile, said in addition to the bands of showers moving through Kauai and Oahu this morning, satellite imagery shows unstable, cumulus clouds in the trade wind flow just east of the state.

Showers over windward and mountain slopes are expected to continue into the evening.

Moderate trades are expected to last through the first half of next week, while a weak, upper-level low-pressure system near the Big Island may bring showers to windward and mauka areas across the state once again on Friday morning. But it should start to dry out by Friday afternoon into the weekend.
