HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Moisture from the south is making its way across the state and drenching parts of the islands.

The flash flood warning that was in effect for Kauai has expired, but the entire state remains under a flash flood watch. 

Kauai and the Big Island got some of the heaviest rains on Thursday. On Kauai, flooding forced the closure of the Hanalei Bridge. The American Red Cross of Hawaii also opened a shelter for affected residents at Hanalei School.

A mudslide has also forced the closure of Kuhio Highway, between Lumahai and Wainiha. 

National Weather Service forecasters said the threat of heavy rains and possible thunderstorms could stick around through Friday.

A winter storm warning is also in effect for Big Island summits through 6 p.m. Friday. 

This story will be updated.
