Heavy rains are expected to ease today
This weekend's heavy showers are expected to taper today, National Weather Service forecasters said.
Last night, heavy rains were situated over Windward Oahu and parts of Waianae. Weather service lead forecaster Jeff Powell said the showers were caused by "lingering instability" from northwest of the islands.
He said much of the state can expect normal tradewind weather today.
A flash-flood warning was in effect for all of Oahu through 11:30 last night. Radar showed the heaviest rains situated over Kailua.
The rains started Saturday and continued for much of Windward Oahu through yesterday. In the 24 hours ending at 8:45 last night, 7.88 inches of rain fell at Ahuimanu Loop. Over the same period, Poamoho saw 6.57 inches of rain, Wilson Tunnel got 4.37 inches and 5.49 inches fell on Luluku.
