The National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood Warning for parts of Oahu until 9:30 a.m.

At 6:10 a.m., heavy rainfall has ended on Oahu but runoff levels remain high. 

Kamehameha Highway remains closed from Hauula to Waikane. Kapaa Quarry Road also remains closed. Avoid unnecessary travel across Windward Oahu.Other locations in the warning include but are not limited to Punaluu, Waiahole, Laie, Kahuku, Kailua, Kaneohe. Waialua, Haleiwa and Waimanalo. 

This Flash Flood Warning replaces the Pre-existing warning that was in effect for the island of Oahu in Honolulu County. Runoff from this storm may also cause rock and mudslides in steep terrain. This warning may need to be extended beyond 9:30 am if Flash Flooding persists.

According to the National Weather Service, " Deep tropical moisture remains over the islands bringing clouds and rain. An upper level trough near the islands is helping to spark locally heavy showers and thunderstorms. Expect conditions to improve late Monday and Tuesday, when a more stable trade wind pattern will return."
