    A flood advisory for Oahu expired earlier today.

UPDATE: 1:30 p.m.

The flood advisory for Oahu has expired.

However, windward areas of all islands will be cloudy and showery into Thursday, forecasters said. Although windward showers will gradually diminish thereafter, so will tradewinds.

Light and variable winds Friday and Saturday should provide mostly dry conditions although another cold front promises increased showers and winds Sunday or Monday.

The flood advisory for Oahu has been extended through 11:15 a.m.

Radar at 9:18 a.m. showed continued moderate rain over the Koolau mountains, officials at the NWS said. “Although rainfall rates have gradually diminished, localized heavier showers with rates of 0.5 to 1 inch per hour remain possible.”

Some locations that will experience flooding include Honolulu, Waiahole, Kahaluu, Waikane, Ahuimanu, Aiea, Halawa, Pearl City, Kaaawa, Kaneohe, Moanalua, Salt Lake, Kalihi, Punaluu, Mililani, Kaneohe Marine Base, Maunawili, Wahiawa, Manoa and Kailua.
