Remnant moisture from former tropical cyclone Gil dropped up to eight inches of rain for parts of the state late Friday into Saturday.
According to the National Weather Service in Honolulu, 7.97 inches of rain fell at the Puu Kukui rain gage in the West Maui Mountains in the 24-hour period that ended up 2 p.m. Saturday. On Oahu, the Moanalua RG gage near the H-3 Freeway tunnels recorded 7.26 inches of rain.
Rainfall was heavy enough to trigger Flood Advisories for Maui and Oahu Saturday, but those were allowed to expire as the rain dissipated.
A somewhat drier trade flow is expected after midnight Saturday night as the remnants of Gil continue dissipating and moving away from the state.
