A Flood Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service through 7:30 p.m.

Heavy rainfall continues over portions of the Hamakua and South Kohala districts. The heaviest rainfall was occurring along the old saddle road near Waikiki and along the Mamalahoa Highway near the Waikoloa Junction through Waimea.

As expected, light and variable wind conditions coupled with a lot of moisture in the atmosphere have led to flare ups of convective activity across parts of the Big Island. As the land cools off and we get into cooler air temperatures, the threat for heavy rain and thunderstorms will begin to diminish.

If conditions persist, the advisory may be extended or upgraded to a warning.
