HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Calmer weather is in the forecast statewide as a storm system that brought heavy rain, thunderstorms, high winds and Big Island snow moves east, away from the islands.

The National Weather Service cancelled the Flash Flood Watch and several other watches and warnings Saturday morning. However, a wind advisory was in effect for the summit areas of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the Big Island  for 30 to 40 mile per hour winds.

Radar showed a line of clouds and showers between Oahu and Molokai at 7 a.m. Saturday, which marked a weak cold front that trailed the main storm. Some clouds were still over Maui and the Big Island, but were expected to move away through the day. (See Hawaii News Now's Interactive Radar.)
